Realised after putting this book down as my choice that seeing as these threads are in Adult Fiction, I may have made a slight error (as it is a travel book). But I have decided to stick with it anyway .
It is by Dervla Murphy, an Irish writer. She has travelled around many parts of the world, often by bike (the first book by her I read, Full Tilt, tells of her journey from Dunkirk to Delhi on a bike) but this journey was mainly on foot.
In it, she, and her daughter Rachel, who was six at the time travelled to Baltistan, or Little Tibet. I find her writing descriptive and also leaves me wanting to know more about the places she explores (often places I would never be likely to visit).
I will be interested to see what everyone else thinks .
