User reviews about the book
The process that is the journey
Having read many books written by adventurous women and men setting out to fulfill a dream of theirs, the best of them include physical challenges, taking personal risks, adapting to unexpected circumstances, learning new skills and opening one's mind and heart to understand the gifts of the journey as they are presented, whether the adventurer is ready or not. This book certainly belongs among them. The author/adventurer captures her experiences, even the most ephemeral, in words that allow the reader to share in them. Her love and respect for the animals she travels with, and her ability to be observant of them and honest with herself, make this book a treat for animal lovers, with information on camels and a perspective on camel/human interaction which is hard to come by. The book also reminds you that the preparation for the journey is an integral part of the journey, and may in fact make that journey seem anticlimactic. It's a wonderful story, and well worth reading!
