Summary, etc.:
"Albertson raised four children and put herself through college while doing so. After her husband's death she became a librarian at the Indiana State Library with a "rest of my life to-do list"...this book tells her personal story as she worked, then retired and began adventuring: learning to kayak, horseback-riding to see the wild mustangs, crewing on a tall ship, visiting the Great Wall of China on a budget, taking gliding lessons and reading Shakespeare"--Back of book.
