In pursuit of a geology degree, Emma left her hometown of Boise, Idaho for San Diego, California. She quickly found that the local crags were schist, and preferred the mountains and high desert to the beach—and writing over chemistry. So Emma changed her major to rhetoric and became a certified climbing guide, spending every weekend in Joshua Tree, Idyllwild, Yosemite, or Red Rocks—not taking her time in the Southwest for granite. She moved to Bozeman because she heard the rocks were gneiss.
