Mules Across the Great Wide Open Map

Join Jody and her sister as they ride green-broke Appaloosas and pack the incredible mule Sarah Jane 1,300 miles from Park City, Utah to Spokane, Washington. A collection of mishaps, old timers' stories and high mountain passes make this book a fun read. Humorously illustrated by Bonnie Shields and with a photo section, this 288 page book can take you away!

From the back cover:
"Jody's wonderful outdoor experiences and character portraits catapult us back to a time when travel itself taught us much of what we know of people and places. This is a trailblazing adventure told from the lazy "altitude" of a mule's saddle. It's a wonderful read for those who relish the pioneer perspective, and it will be a hit with readers of all ages. Happy trails to the reader!"
Anna Rees, Librarian

"This book makes me want to sell my car, get a mule, and hit the road. Jody Foss has written a gen - great reading for folks interested in life along the slowest of roads."
Chuck Woodbury, Editor, Out West, America's on the Road Newspaper

From the back cover:
"Could you fit everything you need on a mule? Jody Foss, in this true western adventure takes the reader across the west, on rocky roads and high mountain trails. In the summer of 1984, Jody saddled her mules Mavis and Sarah Jane and left her Idaho homestead, heading for the coast of Oregon. She discovered a country rich in colorful oral history and old time hospitality."

"Jody's descriptive writing and beautiful pictures enabled me to remember the smells and feelings of my years outdoors."
Anna Lane
