This book couldn't come at a better time for anyone feeling overwhelmed during this world pandemic. Riding along with Benji's highs and lows through self-imposed isolation and the achievements he gained on the other side was truly inspiring. The care he gave to describing the joys he got from exploring the outbacks of Australia, really nailed home the fact we should all get out and experience the backyards we live in. Looking forward to the next adventure!
A fantastic story. Benji describes everything in full and brilliant detail. From emotional breakdown in a captive society to a breakaway adventure of unprecedented proportions for a person with such little experience in Adventure Riding. A story of loss, self examination and success in finding self worth while immersed in the isolation of nature.
LOVED IT......Such a well written story made this a book I could not put down! The writer details his emotional journey along with the physical one that takes him to the top of Australia and across 10 deserts. An inspiring read and testament to human endurance.
