A true lady adventure.,
This review is from: Lois on the Loose (Paperback)
If you enjoy motorcycling as I do, you will probably have seen or read ' The Long Way Around' and 'The long Way Down'. Well that was all very well! but I question how much of a true adventure it was when accompanied by a sizable support team of 4X4's and financially supported by BMW and a menagerie of big businesses.
On the other hand there is Lois Pryce, a lady of true pioneering spirit, she does what most of us in a mundane monotonous job only ever dream of, and as such you feel you are with her all through the ups and downs of her journey from top to bottom of the American continent. I for one could not put it down, this real adventure down through America with little or no kit just her trusty Steed and an infectious normality, living on her wits and meeting her occasional companions and the people of this vast continent makes for a great read. I could hardly wait to get my hands on her next book Red Tape and White knuckles.
