Before settling down in Southbank, B.C. in 1973 and raising their three daughters on their wilderness horse ranch (clearing the land and logging with Belgian draft horses), Elly and Nathan Foote traveled 18,000 miles on horseback from the southern tip of Argentina, through 14 countries during their five-year equine odyssey. Their two books are about this incredible life journey
through unexplored territory. Called by one reviewer: "A radical experiment in freedom and the price they paid for it! A literary gem in a totally new genre."
