Review:

One of the most joyous, positive and poetic voyages - physical, spiritual and environmental (Irish Independent)

This adventure is one of Dervla Murphy's best. She remains her humorous, modest, self-mocking self. (Daily Telegraph)

A tone of exuberance and generosity dominates the book ... The reader's admiration is boundless (Caroline Moorehead, The Spectator)

This is the best account I have read of travel on foot in the Andes. The appreciation for scenery and people and the sheer enjoyment of the journey makes Dervla Murphy one of our outstanding travel writers (Traveller)

There is nothing so dramatic as mountains rising sheer from the plain ... and Dervla Murphy responds with more than the routine rapture of the professional travel writer (Christopher Wordsworth, Observer)

Dervla Murphy is always an honest and endearing companion, so stout of heart and physique that she almost belittles her achievement (Sunday Telegraph)

Book Description:

A fascinating tale of extreme travelling on foot and by mule in the high Andes.

Book Description J. Murray, 1983. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. First edition, first printing. Neat owner's name to front endpaper, else a really lovely copy. Even by Murphy's standards this is an extraordinary tale: the eight feet in question are four belonging to her pack animal, her own two and two belonging to her daughter who was seven or eight at the time if I recall correctly. A terrific read. Seller Inventory # 001221
