Welcome to the Goddamn Ice Cube by Blair Braverman
For Blair Braverman, living in the Arctic was about more than just training for the Iditarod: it was about confronting the self-doubt bred by the violent relationships of her past. Welcome to the Goddamn Ice Cube confronts the alternately painful and beautiful realities of being a woman in the wilderness, offering a nuanced perspective on what drives us to get (and stay) outside.
From heartwarming memoirs to deeply chilling stories of life-and-death struggles, the stories that come out of the wilderness are as diverse as the landscapes where they take place.
