"Carol McMillan may ... invite levity into the lives of friends and acquaintances, but it is the grit of her words; deep, warm, hard, strong, riveting words; that will take you inward. Hold her book in your palms and breathe the Grand Canyon as experienced by a poet adventuress. If you don't have the courage (like me) to take such a journey, know that McMillan has done it for you. Her book is full of the raw experience of raging white water, towering red walls and rarely seen sunsets. McMillan includes her photographs and paintings. I am in awe of the writer as well as the scenery." - CJ Prince, author of Mother, May I?
