    Even if you don’t ride bikes you will love this

    “South Away” is absolutely the best bicycle travel adventure writing I have ever read. Even calling it travel writing does not do it justice as it captures family dynamics perfectly as well as the growth of the characters. The story involves traveling from Canada to Mexico by two first time bicycle tourists. They weren’t experts but learned as they went. This long of a trip is not possible for everyone but it does show how perspectives change when one sees things from a bicycle. The towns and areas that they passed through were described to perfection. From the colors to the temperatures to the locale, I felt like I was there. My own hometown of Sant Cruz, with all its quirkiness, was described well. Right down to the “Bike Church”. The danger of the aptly named Devils Slide reminded me of how scary it is. The description of the constant rain in the first third of the trip made me cold. This is your chance to go on a long trip without the suffering. The author is an excellent writer who is on the shortlist for the Kobo Emerging Writer Prize 2020. My bet is that she will win this years prize, she is that good.

    Insightful, well written and exhilarating

    This book allows us to travel vicariously in what is for most of us armchair travellers - impossible circumstances - and discover a new Canadian author whose biographical account leaves us breathless and enlightened.
