Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Bored by her desk job at the BBC, Pryce decided to convert her travel daydreams into real-life adventure. At her local travel bookshop, she discovered a book called Jupiter's Travels by Ted Simon as well as a few handbooks on motorcycle adventuring, and she was hooked. She bought a small dirt bike, a versatile and affordable Yamaha XT225 Serow, and decided she'd bike from Anchorage, Alaska, to the southernmost city of South America, Ushuaia, Argentina—almost 20,000 miles. In this engaging read, Pryce narrates the adventure. Local bikers helped the witty and sociable Pryce get her Serow fixed, strangers offered shelter or advice and various friends joined her, for better or worse. She rode through flaking dried mud and boulder-strewn donkey paths, through broiling desert heat and blinding Andean snows. Armchair travelers will delight in this funny, vivid account and—almost—wish they'd done it themselves. B&w photos throughout. (Mar.)

From Booklist

For readers who crave, or enjoy reading about, nonstop action and adventure, here is--are you ready?--a motorcycle travel book written by a woman! Join Pryce as she inks her route onto the map, chooses a bike, resigns from her job, and rolls on out. If "vroom" is your thing, you'll enjoy accompanying her on her many adventures and misadventures. You'll warm up to her steadfast stubbornness, her obsession about keeping on, keeping on. You'll beam as you ride across giant salt flats, high desert, and rocky landscapes. Pryce covers nearly 20,000 miles, yet she is as restless and hopeful when she is finally homeward bound as she was when she set out. As an in-depth travelogue, this disappoints; similarly, as a wildly funny travelogue, the book also disappoints. True, it is a fast read, and the author is truly a friendly storyteller, but veteran travel readers will find themselves wanting more. More casual readers, however, will be just fine with it and come to appreciate that "vroom" is music to her ears. Sarah Watstein
