The strength of these stories is in the imagery, especially the sensual descriptions which seem to have no direct connection to sex. In every story, the setting sets the tone and blends with the sex scenes and the physical characteristics of the characters. In some cases, a spectacular natural environment (the Grand Canyon, the coast of New England) seems to inspire sex between women which could not have occurred anywhere else, or in any other way.
In "Petroglyphs," a woman who is at home in the wilderness senses that she has company:
"Something moved among the Douglas firs where the forest sloped upward toward burnished rock. The short hairs at the nape of Sigri's neck prickled with the sense of being watched."
Sigri's mare shows a similar reaction.
A person with skin tones to match the burnished rock attacks Sigri, who fights back with the skill of long practice. Then the reader learns that the wrestling match is a game, not a historical battle of First Nations warrior against Viking explorer. The two women have an old agreement about which moves determine the winner. As the play-fight segues immediately into grappling of a different kind, the reader learns more about their relationship, and Sigri's commitment to her "wife" on the ranch.
Rock formations play a large role in this story, as well as in "Of Dark and Bright," "Long Meg," and "Bright Angel.Read more ›

I'd read several of these before, but that wasn't a drawback; it was, rather, like revisiting old friends and the ultimate reunion lay in reading the final story, "Alternate Lives." How wonderful, to open and close a collection with the same characters--to come full-circle.
As much as I loved "Alternate Lives," though, I think my favorite story may have been "Long Meg." Wow, talk about leading you down a path. My mind strayed to Alice and the white rabbit. I found myself saying, "Don't eat it," and then saying,"Don't eat that, either!" Of course, Sacchi beat me to it! Although I couldn't think of anything better to eat, at that point. (You're just gonna have to read it, I'm afraid...)
I've loved "The Outside Edge" since first reading it in Girl Crazy. "Dietrich Wears Army Boots" is a joy and I was thrilled to see "A Ride to Remember" here. I had the pleasure of reading it a while ago and am so happy it found a home in this collection. I'm not going to mention every story, just know that each piece in this book is stellar; a lovely book in which to lose yourself.
