--Tristan Gooley, New York Times bestselling author of The Lost Art of Reading Nature's Signs
Praise for Phenomenal:

"What a cool and fascinating ride. Leigh Ann Henion has tackled one of the great questions of contemporary, intelligent, adventurous women: Is it possible to be a wife and mother and still explore the world? Her answer seems to be that this is not only possible, but essential. This story shows how. I think it will open doors for many."
-- Elizabeth Gilbert, bestselling author of Eat, Pray, Love

"A moving and original memoir about the search for transcendence in moments both large and small."
-- Jenny Offill, author of Dept. of Speculation

"Leigh Ann Henion's exhilarating book (and life!) is everything the title suggests and more. Reading Phenomenal will give you courage--courage to explore the world we live in, and further, courage to explore your self. With moments of breath-stealing beauty, wild intelligence, and unrelenting honesty, Phenomenal is a true gift for everyone who's ever been curious."
-- Ruth Ozeki, author of The Book of Form and Emptiness----
