The how-to guide for overcoming obstacles, the daily mantra, the wild adventure, the quarter-life crisis, and the self-help book of the century - all wrapped into one crazy story about the life of a "kinda Amish" girl. It's messy, honest, real, and inspiring. A young woman's fearless journey into the unknown after having an epiphany about the true meaning of life. The beautifully woven masterpiece looks at the life of a small-town girl who, at the age of seven, predicted that she would one day write a book. Despite being shunned by her family, she decided to take a leap of faith and left home at the age of nineteen with $500 to her name and a one-way ticket to Honolulu, Hawaii. How to Eat an Elephant is an eloquent reflection of the life of a first-generation college graduate. The nuanced writing style brings new life to the mundane artifacts of everyday life.

About the Author

Jess Hall was born and raised on a small farm in northwest Georgia. She grew up in an independent Baptist community and was homeschooled her entire life. As a young adult, she longed for more than what a small town could offer and decided to move away for college. In 2012, she graduated with a bachelor's degree in Sociology with a minor in Social Work from Marymount Manhattan College in New York City. Traveling extensively in the United States and Canada after graduating college, she developed her spiritual intuition. She has lived in Hawaii, New York City, Colorado, and Alaska. She believes that each place has provided her with a unique perspective, each of which she has learned to value. She believes that the more one moves around emotionally, physically, or intellectually, the more they gain spiritually.
