About the Author

Brianna Madia has lived a life of relentless intention, traveling the deserts of the American West in an old Ford van. She made a name for herself on social media with her inspiring captions-cum-essays about bravery, identity, nature, and subverting expectations. She lives in Utah with her four dogs. Her first book, Nowhere for Very Long, was a New York Times bestseller. Never Leave the Dogs Behind is her second book.


"Very few memoirs go as deep and honest as Madia's Never Leave the Dog's Behind, a brave and inspiring account of a young woman's life being fired in a desert kiln. Amid the unrefined edges of canyon rock and unflinching sun, Madia somehow manages to mend a shattered heart via the remarkable bond she shares with her four-legged companions. I haven't enjoyed a memoir this much since Wild." -- Carol Dunbar, award-winning author of The Net Beneath Us

"A searing metamorphosis. A book for those who know that to stay at the surface is to drown. It takes a brave soul to articulate, not the build-up of the heroine's glorious fire, nor her rise from the ashes, but the actual sparring with flames, the soot-covered rumble in the cinders of herself. Bri is that soul, and her writing is a salve for those who are burning to be free." -- Steph Jagger, author of Unbound and Everything Left to Remember

"An intimate memoir of shattering pain." -- Kirkus Reviews
