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!

The writing is straight forward, but the ride itself is captivating. I have huge admiration for the author. This is a great story.

Oh this looks interesting! Thank you very much :) And as Sakirmo says, I've read a couple of male cyclists' accounts of tours so it will be interesting to see if a woman has a different take on it.
