    The Best Book on Travel Imaginable

    Simply an incredible book. One woman wants to row down the Nile in a rowboat. Along the way she explains why, and the characters she meets, what Egypt from the water looks like, and how it feels to row a boat alone as a woman. I've never read a book like it and recommend it to anybody who will listen. I also ran out and bought every other book she's written.

    There is plenty of dramatic tension, and the incredible presence of the boat following behind her for some of the way.

    This would make a fantastic movie. It gives self reliance and adventure a new definition: read this book!

    Beautiful Journey

    I took this with me recently on a trip to Egypt, and had the pleasure if reading it while sailing down the nile. However, I sincerely feel that while reading this deeply pensive and beautifully poetic account of one woman's journey, the reader will be transported to the river in that same small boat, meeting the same nile dwellers and feeling the heat of the Egyptian sun while embarking on the author's vivid discovery of self, strength, and an often misunderstood culture's perception of womanhood.
