Never Leave the Dogs Behind

Calling all lovers of memoirs and those who have ever had their lives fall completely apart—this book should be on your list.

Written by the pioneer of the #vanlife movement, Brianna Madia, it chronicles the road from Instagram influencer and happily married woman to a divorcee, living in a trailer (albeit a pretty handsome one) with her four dogs on a patch of dirt in Moab, Utah. This girl from Connecticut has come a long way. Her pups, Bucket, Banjo, Birdie, and Dagwood, are her only company as she comes face to face with herself, living entirely by candlelight with no running water and no working toilet.

Perfect for the wild at heart, lovers of nature, graduates of Outward Bound or Noles, and general survivors of life.
