Book Description

7 Mar 2002

India is no place for the faint-hearted cyclist. The streets are jammed with cars, busses, rickshaws, animals, fortune-tellers, barbers, beggars and people sleeping or cooking.

Following the success of her two previous outings, A Bike Ride and Lone Traveller, adventuresome ex-headmistress Anne Mustoe donned the cycle helmet once more and set out on an exhilarating journey round the Indian subcontinent. Beginning in Kathmandu in Nepal and ending in the tranquil hill town of Kandy in Sri Lanka, Anne's amazing journey is told with keen observation and the relish of the open road.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not in the same style as her first two books 18 Mar 2001
I read her first book, A Bike Ride, with riveting fascination five times. I have read her second book, Lone Traveler with similar interest twice to date. This new book is different. Its style in following Indian mythology will distract her regular audience; they will be disappointed in the absence of the day-by-day, town-by-town detail of the two earlier books. Even in the sections when she is describing every day happenings, the writing style is different. I have to be convinced that Anne Mustoe has actually written this book, it's so different.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent, and different, travel book 13 May 2001
By A Customer
'Two Wheels in the Dust' is Mrs Mustoe's best book yet. Like 'Lone Traveller' it doesn't follow a single bike ride, instead taking it's structure from the Ramayana, one of the Hindu religion's sacred books. The journey takes the route of the Ramayana from Nepal through India to Sri Lanka, following Rama, Sita , Hanuman and a whole legion of gods, demons, humans and animals. Most chapters end with an extract from the Ramayana that relates to the area Mrs Mustoe is in.
This is a wonderful book because it plays to Mrs Mustoe's strengths: her erudition and educational background. The enthusiasm she displays about her discoveries of Hinduism and the Ramayana is infectious, and this transfers to her depiction of the land and its people. I guess this book also wins in that it makes me want to visit India and read the Ramayana, which is surely the goal of any travel book!...

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Read 31 Jan 2009
By Caesar
I have travelled around India which inspired me to choose this book. It is a lovely read about a very brave woman who tells of her travels alongside an old Indian story which makes it much more interesting than reading a travel diary.
I really enjoyed the book and I'm not much of a reader!
