Reviews

On more subtle display is the goodness Dautheville finds in people everywhere she travels, effectively demonstrating the beauty of cultures different from our own. --Booklist, starred review

Morstad's sophisticated, retro-chic artwork lovingly evokes the time frame dictated by the real life adventures of French writer Anne-France Dautheville, first woman to go around the world by motorcycle . . . The result is part documentary, part dreamscape with strong crossover appeal for fans of history and of romantic adventure, all of whom will find their curiosity assuaged in an endnote that explores Dautheville's experience (complete with photographic confirmation) and Novesky's own dream-chasing research and interview. --BCCB, starred review For picture book collections aimed at older readers, this is likely to touch something profound in teen or preteen lovers of Henry David Thoreau's Walden as well as those who hear the siren call of travel.--School Library Journal
A lovely tribute to both the pioneering motorcyclist and the joys of the open road. --The Horn Book
A testimony to fearlessness that challenges traditional gender expectations. --Publishers Weekly
