    1 thought on “The Maze: A Desert Journey

    1. For me, this book delivered a mixed read. The descriptions of the horses and their antics were wonderful and a joy to read. When there was a focus on the day to day activates of travelling on horseback through Arizona (highs, lows, places and people), I followed trek with interest. However, in places, the author lost me because I found the writing too ‘new age’. In others too deep. This is probably because I have a more ‘matter of fact’ personality and therefore prefer to read this style [...]

    2. Not to quibble, but I think Rees is describing a labyrinth rather than a maze although maze is a better description of her journey. She write a sometimes humorous, honest account of her trip by horseback through the southwest which I found interesting.

    3. Simply lovely book. Rich description and thoughtful approach to the human relationship with horses. I highly recommend.
