This memoir holds within its calloused hands the comradery women long for, set against vivid and enduring depictions of Montana character. Katie Dawn befriends the reader by sharing the hilarity, haunting, and healing of her life experiences within the close-knit community of five women that helped shape her – The Posse. Monthly gatherings for Wax Night become the backbone of their friendships and offer the freedom to bare all. Katie’s writing style balances sass and sarcasm with deep and raw vulnerability; a rare and intensely satisfying combination. She masterfully articulates the distilled feelings of trauma and gratitude that many before have struggled to express. As far-reaching as the Big Sky, and yet as intimate as a conversation by a glimmering campfire, this book will resonate long after the last page is savored.
