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'.

Reviews

'One of the most joyous, positive and poetic voyages -- physical, spiritual and environmental' -- Irish Independent 'This adventure is one of Dervla Murphy's best. She remains her humorous, modest, self-mocking self.' -- Daily Telegraph 'A tone of exuberance and generosity dominates the book ! The reader's admiration is boundless' -- Caroline Moorehead, The Spectator 'This is the best account I have read of travel on foot in the Andes. The appreciation for scenery and people and the sheer enjoyment of the journey makes Dervla Murphy one of our outstanding travel writers' -- Traveller 'There is nothing so dramatic as mountains rising sheer from the plain ... and Dervla Murphy responds with more than the routine rapture of the professional travel writer' -- Christopher Wordsworth, Observer 'Dervla Murphy is always an honest and endearing companion, so stout of heart and physique that she almost belittles her achievement' -- Sunday Telegraph
