Review of Remote: Finding Home in the Bitterroots
This was an interesting memoir focusing on the author’s search for answers about her family history and search for her missing friend. DJ Lee’s family has a long history of living and working in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness in Idaho and Montana. The author spent time there on numerous occasions to find out more about the lives of her grandparents and their history. Interspersed in the book is the search for her friend Connie who went missing in the dense wilderness area. The descriptions of the area and the wilderness are wonderful. You feel as though you are immersed in the forest. Along the way we also meet many interesting characters that live or travel to this area. I admired the tenacity of the author both for researching her family history for years and her strength and perseverance in the wilderness.
