Reviews

"Now this is feminism!. . . Buhring is in a class with Amelia Earhart and Kathrine Switzer; brave, strong, and a little crazy in the best possible way." -- Douglas Lord - Library Journal
"Vivid...Buhring insists she is...just an ordinary person pushing outside her comfort zone. That is exactly what makes her story so amazing." -- Booklist
"[A] testament to the human will to overcome and survive as well as a moving portrait of a woman on a deeply personal quest to define the meaning of her life. A searching, engaging memoir from an author who "can be at home no matter where I am in the world."" -- Kirkus Reviews
"This is an inspirational memoir about the power of one's undefeatable determination that will appeal to adrenaline seekers." -- Publisher's Weekly
"An incredible journey that is awe inspiring and completely captivating. I couldn't put the book down, couldn't wait to find out how Buhring would overcome the next barrier! She makes one realize that great dreams are possible to achieve. One of my all-time favorites!" -- Lynne Cox, author of Swimming to Antarctica and Grayson
"Juliana Buhring endured fear, doubt, and pain to achieve a truly remarkable feat. But Buhring is more than an athlete-she's a phoenix, who rose from the ashes of a horrific childhood and a devastating personal loss to test herself against the unknown. You'll be amazed and inspired by this book." -- Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive
"I read this book in a single sitting, transfixed by Juliana's incredible story... The physical achievement of riding around the world pales in comparison to the mental achievement of holding herself together and staying the course through such hardship. This is one of those stories that just pulls you along for the ride. Once I embarked, it just whisked me along until the end." -- Alex Honnold, author of Alone on the Wall
