Nd to Kathmandu was kidnapped and uestioned 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 Wow I didn't read this for a while because of the cover which looks so '50s and upbeat Then I flipped through and realized it's part travelogue for a woman who drove half way around the world in a Land Rover by herself It's really of an autobiography than a memoir covering decades countries and cultures She tells her story in simple uick moving prose It's rare to find nonfiction like this that I just can't put down I was appalled by the apartheid culture of South Africa in the 1970s not so different from the US maybe but the danger and hatred recent I love languages and adventure and so enjoyed the travels personalities food I can identify with Shirley's desire to break out of ordinary life draining routines The eastern wisdom that sounded like Christianity than some Christians was intriguingI recommend this book for anybody who loves travel or armchair traveling or who wants inspiration to break out of their routine
