After years of living on an isolated guest ranch in central Idaho without electricity, telephone, or daily mail service, Carolyn White returns to civilization in this sequel to the much-loved memoir, Bricks Underneath a Hoop Skirt. Accustomed to a primitive lifestyle, she buys a tiny cottage in the woods and continues cooking on a wood stove, sewing on a treadle machine, and frequently riding her three horses, often forgetting she has light switches, a truck parked in a driveway, and easy communication with the outside world. In Trucks Are for Girls, meet Carolyn’s sole, off-grid neighbors, a cranky Vietnam vet and his precocious, freckle-faced daughter. Laugh as she confronts new types of wildlife, including the porcupine that comes in through the cat door and the stray bull that tries to eat her hay. Reunite with Lester, Monroe, and Squirrel, the cats she adopted while living on the guest ranch, and fall in love with Cody, the Australian shepherd that comes along shortly after she settles in McCall. With great warmth, detailed descriptions, and tongue-in-cheek humor, Carolyn continues with her stories of survival in rugged, high-mountain snow-country. Flashing back to her years of driving a team of horses, milking a cow, and cooking for a crew, she reveals the kind of lifestyle that most readers will never get to know until becoming completely immersed in her world—and falling as deeply in love with it as she did.
