4000 Kms of dense rainforest, no shelter, no medical help, drenching rain and extreme heat are what greet 50 year old Louise Sutherland when she bikes the Tranz-Amazonia highway in Brazil.

An interesting travel story about a woman who enjoys culture and the environment.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

A very nice read - refreshingly different from a few recent books by (male) cyclists that concentrated way too much on lists of what they ate and how many kilometres they "did" in a day... In my opinion, on a long journey it's perfectly fine to summarize some uneventful parts of it by saying "it took me seven days to cycle from A to B" instead of documenting every single mile of it, over and over again :D

Going to Lubiette next. Enjoy!

I can only feel admiration for Louise Surtherland after reading the story of this extraordinary journey and the reasons why she published the book. Respect.
