Women Gone Wild The adventures of two city slickers who leave their urban footprints behind and learn to love rattlers, bears, pot growers, two dachshunds and each other. Anyone who's ever dreamed of chucking it all and moving to the country will find Women Gone Wild a funny, provocative and engaging story. And it's all true. Writer Jane Futcher and her partner, Erin, haven't a clue what they're getting into when they buy 160 acres in the mountain wilds of inland Mendocino County. Starting with a tent, then a little cabin, and finally a house off the grid, six miles down a dirt road, the two women and their miniature long-haired dachshunds face fears, phobias and close encounters with rattlesnakes, bears, wild horses, pot growers and each other. Idyllic? Hardly. Worth it? Absolutely!
