Getting Life by Michael Morton
This book is about Michael who was wrongfully convicted in his wife's death. He spent 25 years in jail for a crime he did not commit. Michael writes eloquently about his travels through the criminal justice system. I read Just Mercy last year about justice and how it is served. This book reminded me a lot of that book.
Dirt Work: An Education in the Woods by Christine Byl
This book was a slower go at the beginning. You will never look at a trail in a National Park the same way again. Christine worked on trail crews in Glacier and Cordova and Denali. She talks quite a bit how being a woman in this line of work. You can't but help but feel Christine's love of the outdoors and trail work. Make no doubt about it, trail work is back breaking sometimes thankless work.
