Book Description

May 20 2010

"It is my wish that this story will inspire you to live your dream, whatever that may be."

In the summer of 2001, at fifty-three years old, Doris Maron sold everything she owned, except her motorcycle and a few personal belongings, to live a dream. On August 4 of that year, Maron left Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, on her 750cc Honda Magna to begin her journey around the world. Over the next two years and eleven months, she traveled across forty-four countries on six continents. Traveling mostly solo, she faced fears, doubts, and loneliness. Her rewards would be to gain a wealth of education one simply cannot obtain from textbooks, to make lasting friendships around the globe, to experience other cultures, and to satisfy her passion to see the world.

Untamed Spirit: Around the World on a Motorcycle covers the first part of her journey and is an account of her experiences traveling as a lone woman into countries around the globe. Writing from her travel journals, she now shares her tales of her trek with the world. Hers are stories of adventure and challenge-of living a dream.

2.0 out of 5 stars ultra tame spirit April 29 2011
By Peter M. Gaul - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The premise of a 53 year old woman basically giving up her life to live her dream riding around the world by herself for several years sounded interesting. This had to be a daring, excentric and - as the title suggests - somewhat wild character. Nothing could be further from the truth. I got to page 67, then just gave up because it is little more than a really dry chronological list of events and facts. There is no surprise, no emotions of any depth, no excitement, no humor. A very sweet, nice, humble person, but not very entertaining. The first 103 pages take place in Canada(her home), Alaska, Australia and New Zealand, all of which are relatively unexotic for a Westerner, leaving just about 85 pages to cover all of Asia, Europe, and Latin America, plus the return trip to Canada. Maybe it gets better, but I just don't have the strength....

4.0 out of 5 stars Untamed Spirit - A Travelogue for Motorcycle Travel Dec 19 2009
By Kerry D. Frost - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Untamed Spirit is a day by day, point to point travelogue of a motorcycle "journey of a lifetime". The story is presented in an informational manner and leaves the reader with a list of requisites for international travel by motorcycle. The travelogue provides names for all of the "not to miss" places but is short on history or geologic detail to add significance to these places. Still a good reference text for those who plan to do or a good story book for those who dream they would.
