Full Tilt : Ireland to India with a Bicycle


Braving hunger, heat exhaustion, unbearable terrain and cultures largely untouched by civilisation, Dervla Murphy chronicles her determined trip through nine countries, through snow and ice in the mountains and miles of barren land in the scorching desert. Full Tilt is a highly individual account by a celebrated travel writer based on the daily diary Murphy kept while riding through Yugoslavia, Persia, Afghanistan, over the Himalayas to Pakistan and into India. Murphy's charm and gracious sensitivity as a writer and a traveler reveals not only civilisations of exotic people and places but the wonder of a woman alone on an extraordinary adventure.
