From AudioFile:

Armchair travelers should take note of Dervla Murphy's trek through the Andes with her nine-year-old daughter. Binchy gives a creditable reading if one excuses minor stumbling and infrequent background noise. Murphy's story is occasionally interrupted by accounts from her daughter, which, unfor-tunately, reveal Binchy's difficulty with the child's characterization. Nonetheless, the story is a wonderful blend of feminism, anthropology and adventure. The set should appeal to many, both lovers of fiction and nonfiction. E.L.C. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
