This book has been on hold because Lisa couldn't release the book as it was, not with 80% of it destroyed by a group of people whose purposeful and willful destruction of her projects: people who followed her steps, left bullet shells at her daily stops, chopped down or off the plants, trees, placed dead animal parts (heads and guts) killed subjects, tampered with her truck, destroyed the life she found and documented.
She prayed and thought deeply what she should do with the book, however, she had to first understand the deepermeaningfrom her firsteditor,and after muchprayer,decidedtopublishthebook showing what she found, daily, wasn't that the point?

Lisa designed two covers for this book. One cover pictures the flames lapping the trees and may have been the obvious choice. However, in Lisa's 600+ day her experience, it was the clouded version that presented itself, as she walked, daily. It pictures what she saw: the view of people who pretended to be friends clouding her view, when, in reality looking through the flames offered the a clearer view, it didn't picture or mirror her true experience.
