By no means is this little coffee table book a monumental work of literature, but is a quick light, stress free read. Ended up reading most of this book during an after noon rain storm. Really enjoyed her story telling style and thought the story of Jewel's life on an Alaskan Homestead among her musician family very interesting. Some of the pages also had little doodles and such in the margins drawn by the sing/songwriter author. However, if she were not a musician, I doubt that this book would find a printer. Still, a fun little read into the mind of a women with beautiful voice which shines through in her writing.
In this 2 cassette, unabridged audio selection, recording artist, actress, and bestselling author Jewel opens her intimate journals to create a vivid montage of the people, places, and relationship that colored the life she came from. This audio collection captures images from Jewel's childhood in Alaska, her beginnings as a struggling artist, and her challenges as a daughter, sister, and woman. An honest portrait of an exceptional journey that carried her to the world's stage. It is mosaic of prose and poetry set to the rhythm of life. Jewel Kilcher was raised in Alaska.

Beautiful writing by a beautiful artist.
....with acutely observed, elegantly written depictions of the musicians, lovers, strangers, celebrities and other characters that inhabit the singer/ songwriter's world, Chasing Down the Dawn is more than a collection of vignettes, observations, and stories. It is a finely wrought mosaic in prose and poetry, set to the rhythm of life.
