"In Remote, DJ Lee has achieved an intricate weave of myriad strands, of the lives of family members and strangers past and present as well as her own intimate knowledge and experience, as she explores the perilous and profound implications of wilderness and in particular the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness of Idaho and Montana."
--Mary Clearman Blew, author of Jackalope Dreams and Ruby Dreams of Janis Joplin
"In Remote, DJ Lee deftly intertwines the evocative and the provocative into a beautifully written and fully engaging memoir. Her fascinating interwoven stories sweep us into the complexities and mysteries of the human wilderness, too, each chapter offering unpredictable surprises and insights that stay with us. A profound pleasure to read."
-- Joy Passanate, author of Through a Long Absence: Words from My Father's Wars"
