Four years ago, dealing with professional uncertainty and a deteriorating relationship with the woman in his life, the author voluntarily took a job as a winter caretaker on a remote ranch in New Mexico's Tusas Mountains, in order to experience an extended pe [...]

    • I wish the author had focused more on his three months living in solitude. The sparse journal entries were the best reading in this book. There was far too much informationo much blah, blah, blah.


    • The only thing this book lacked was more daily journals. Excellent read that has transformed my vision on daily stillness. Quiet helps to control the mind.Control the mind and you can control anything.
