I received a 5 Star review on Amazon:
"Susan Smith-Josephy's biography of the legendary Lillian Alling is a well-researched and compelling account of a woman who travelled over 3,000 miles, solo from New York to Siberia (largely on foot!) at a time when women were discouraged from such grand endeavour, to say the least...I doubt anyone reading this work will have read anything else quite like it. Considering the dearth of historical detail where our female fore bearers are concerned, this book enlightens as it engages us; in what we know happened and what we imagine might have! It's a joyful and inspiring read."
