First person narrative of the author s life. Joyce wrote about what made her become an ecologist and about her research what worked and what were the pitfalls in her studies. Through this approach, she hoped readers could gain insights and appreciation of the natural world we share, especially in relation to the aspen tree. Her son, Ben, helped her complete the manuscript in her dying days.

Death, the uncompromising time keeper of life, knocks reminding me, my time has come. I don t feel cheated; instead, I feel blessed. I ve had a good run.

Joyce said that if her biography were compressed to a single sentence, it would read: Joyce Gellhorn skis from October to June, backpacks from June to October, and, in between, travels the globe to any destination where mountains are found
