Wheels Within Wheels: The Making of a Traveller

Wheels Within Wheels: The Making of a Traveller

Dervla Murphy


during this superbly written and searingly sincere autobiography, the intrepid bicycle owner and tourist Dervla Murphy recalls her richly unconventional first thirty years. She describes her decided adolescence self - strong-willed and beguiled by means of books from the 1st - her intermittent formal schooling and the serious courting of an simply baby along with her mom and dad, really her invalid mom, whom she nursed until eventually her loss of life. Bicycling fifty miles in an afternoon on the age of 11, by myself, it sort of feels simply common that her first significant trip must have been to cycle to India.
