Reviews

"When you've got friendship, a must-see global destination, and wild horses, what more is there to ask for?"-- "Bustle"
"Bilksi is undoubtedly enamored of the horses, a breed protected by law in Iceland for more than a thousand years, closely watching their actions and recounting their travels together with an almost mystical admiration. But she also closely observes her travel companions, these women with travails both everyday and extraordinary, whose adventures form the core of this rapturous travelogue."-- "Booklist"
"This charming saga of Icelandic cross-country riding has a little of everything--wild tales of mad gallops, centuries of the island's history and personal stories of redemption and revitalization. It made me want to take my turn there!"--Wendy WIlliams, author of 'The Horse: The Epic History of Our Noble Companion'
"Bilski weaves a narrative of horses and friendship in windswept Iceland in this transportive memoir. Those with adventurous spirits and healthy amounts of wanderlust will devour this charming memoir."-- "Publishers Weekly"
"Delving into notions of freedom, independence, expression, nature and adventure, Wild Horses of the Summer Sun is a magical, thought-provoking memoir."-- "TravelMag"
"Tory Bilski's witty memoir of her annual 'horse sabbaticals' to Iceland will open up an entirely new side of this scenic travel destination for you."-- "sheknows.com "19 Books That Will Take You on the Vacation You Can't Actually Go On""
