About the Author
Barbara Kingscote currently lives just outside of Red Deer, Alberta. Having earned her MA and PhD in Veterinary Science from the University of Guelph, Kingscote has spent a lifetime working with animals. From researching zoonosis (diseases that can be passed from animals to humans), to studying reindeer in Canadas far north, Kingscote has many more incredible true stories to tell.
Top Customer Reviews
This book is less about the physical journey itself but does, at times, reads like what many young (and old) people have been doing for millenia and that is to find their own place in society. I don't think that Ms. Kingscote found her place during this journey but it was a start.
The best parts of this book has to do with her interactions with people across Canada, both good and bad, with the good overwhelming the bad. I loved hearing how people invited her in and sheltered her and almost passed her along to the next set of friends. In that I hear the resonance of long-ago bike tours and it makes me wish for the open road.
