'A beautifully written exploration of a woman's endeavour to let go of fear' JOEY SOLOWAY, creator of Transparent and I Love Dick 'An unputdownable page-turner . . . an adventure into the expanse of Alaska's wild . . . I never wanted this book to end' T KIRA MADDEN, author of Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls 'There's truth and beauty on every page of this gorgeous and gripping book' CHERYL STRAYED, author of Wild Amy Butcher was an accomplished college professor, mentor and writer, but in her own home, she was embarrassed and emotionally burdened by an increasingly abusive relationship. Exhausted and terrified of the ways her partner's behaviour could escalate, Amy reached out to Instagram celebrity Joy 'Mothertrucker' Wiebe. Joy was a fifty-year-old wife and mother and the nation's only female ice road trucker, a woman who maneuvered big rigs through the Alaskan wilderness along the deadliest road in America. Joy was everything Amy wanted to be: independent, fearless, and in charge of her life in a landscape dominated by men. Invited by Joy to ride shotgun, Amy found her escape on a road that was treacherous, beautiful, and exhilarating ? an adventurous ride through the Alaskan wilderness that was profoundly life changing. Mothertrucker is the story of that bracing four-hundred-mile journey navigating snow-glazed overpasses, ice-blue curves, and near plummets. It's also the stories that led them both to Alaska ? an interrogation of the reality of female fear, domestic violence, and how to overcome ? and an exploration into just how galvanizing friendships between women can be. Soon to be a major film starring Julianne Moore.
