Why read it?
1 author picked Revolutionary Ride as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?
I include this refreshing travel memoir for escapism – something to be savoured as well as to stretch the mind.

By turns entertaining, amusing and full of love for a country and people of which she had no knowledge beyond Western propaganda, it is brilliantly written. Pryce challenges her own assumptions, widens her perspective and has a blast in an engrossing, compelling, easy-to-read travelogue.
