About the Author:

Dervla Murphy is one of the very best loved of travel writers. She was born in County Waterford and since 1964 has been regularly publishing accounts of her journeys - by bicycle or by mule or on foot - in the remoter areas of four continents. The Times Literary Supplement called her 'an admirable woman - she has a romantic soul and a keen eye'.

Review:

Murphy's observation is acute, her self-effacement is disarming * Sunday Times * Dervla Murphy's credentials are more than a brave heart and strong calf muscles ... the fruit of these mature wanderings for my money puts her among the select travel writers of the last two decades. * Observer * An admirable woman ... She has a romantic soul and a keen eye * Times Literary Supplement * Dervla Murphy must be top of the intrepid class: conventional travel writers seem impossibly pallid by contrast. * Financial Times * One of the supreme virtues of Dervla Murphy as a travel writer is that she is human. She needs her drink; she craves her cigarettes; she is capable of losing her temper; she smuggles things through customs. A more virtuous figure would be far less endearing. * Daily Telegraph *
