Overview

In 1956, Shirley Deane, a young professional musician, turned her back on a recording contract and TV appearances to work her way around the world. She traveled to 67 countries, became the first woman to drive a Land Rover from England to Kathmandu, was kidnapped and questioned by Turkish police, offered a job by the CIA, was cured of asthma by an indigenous doctor in Kashmir, managed a clinic in a Tibetan refugee camp in Nepal, and stood against death threats to write and publish the first ever Who's Who of Black South Africans. And that's only part of her amazing story. Without the 24 pages of photographs, newspaper clippings, and other memorabilia, you might forget you are reading a memoir.
