What makes a working mother and average athlete decide to take on a massive physical and mental challenge to run, cycle, and kayak the perimeter of South Africa, covering 6,772 km in less than five months? Married to adventurer Peter van Kets, Kim van Kets was inspired by her desire to demonstrate to her daughter the fact that mothers are heroes too. An enthusiastic, inspiring, and amusing South African adventure, her story tells not only of the physical and mental challenges of the journey but of the people and places she encountered along the way. The book is also a wonderful South African travelogue and is studded with nuggets of history and fascinating trivia about the plants, animals, characters, and places as well as brief summaries of important life lessons the journey highlighted for the author.
