The author’s quest to ride a jackass across northern Colorado, accompanied by a horseback friend, is plagued by torrential rain, blizzards, windstorms, and other troubles. The goal was to draw attention to violence in schools, but along the way the author finds a deeper understanding of her own childhood suffering and its poisonous effects on her adult life.
