Nd to Kathmandu was kidnapped and uestioned by Turkish police offered a job by the CIA was cured of asthma by an indigenous doctor in Kashmir managed a clinic in a Tibetan refugee camp in Nepal and stood against death threats to. Wow I didn't read this for a while because of the cover which looks so '50s and upbeat Then I flipped through and realized it's part travelogue for a woman who drove half way around the world in a Land Rover by herself It's really of an autobiography than a memoir covering decades countries and cultures She tells her story in simple uick moving prose It's rare to find nonfiction like this that I just can't put down I was appalled by the apartheid culture of South Africa in the 1970s not so different from the US maybe but the danger and hatred recent I love languages and adventure and so enjoyed the travels personalities food I can identify with Shirley's desire to break out of ordinary life draining routines The eastern wisdom that sounded like Christianity than some Christians was intriguingI recommend this book for anybody who loves travel or armchair traveling or who wants inspiration to break out of their routine

    How Shirley Deane is not a household name is beyond me after reading her incredible memoir I was lucky enough to have a friend recommend this little known book to me after she picked it up from a small bookstore in North Carolina and I mean LUCKY as this has easily risen to the top of my list of favorite non fiction books The stories Shirley shares from her life are so wild intimate and varied that each chapter could easily be expanded into its own book I feel both connected to and in awe of the way Deane chose to live her life and truly take the fabled ‘road less traveled’I’ve already bought copies of this to share and will continue to rave about this book to anyone who has an inkling that there is to this life anyone who loves travel and adventure anyone looking for inspiration and anyone who loves a page turner as this memoir is all of these things and Shirley you are a real hero for staying true to oneself and breaking all of the right rules

    I found this book in the Unbelievable category because Ms Deane's Memoir is so filled with adventures dreams love stories tales of her life as an entertainer who made history that you just keep reading as to where she was going next and with whomThe style of writing from not chapter to chapter but skipping in certain years was a bit distractingI would highly recommend this one

    What an amazing life story I think most of us couldn't boast 110 as much adventure and intrigue A very fun read Crazy to think this is non fiction
