More About the Book

When she received her acceptance to medical school, Claire Unis was an idealistic 22-year-old waitress living in a small town in the Eastern Sierra. She arrived confident that caring about people would carry her through. But the trails she found herself traveling in medical school were more treacherous than she imagined. As she emerged from the dark tunnel of endless studying into the labyrinth of the hospital, she found herself wrestling self-doubt while placating irascible patients, fighting sleep-deprivation, and sinking in the quicksands of empathy before arriving at the crux that plagues physicians today: how to retain compassion for others while struggling to stay whole.

By beautifully juxtaposing the often-tempestuous landscape of becoming a doctor with the author’s wide-ranging adventures in nature, this smartly written memoir explores the heart and sinew of medicine, discovering places where knowledge and meaning diverge—and, unexpectedly, intertwine.
