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 and on foot - in the remoter areas of four continents. She has also written about the problems of Northern Ireland, the hazards of nuclear power, and race relations in Britain. The Times Literary Supplement called her 'an admirable woman - she has a romantic soul and a keen eye'.

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
