On her tenth birthday, Devla Murphy was presented with a bicycle and an atlas; she determined to cycle from Ireland to India. Twenty-one years later she found herself free to carry out her dream. Mounted upon an Armstrong Cadet man's bicycle named Rozinante, nicknamed Roz, she set out on January 14, 1963 to cross a wintry Europe. She recalls this part of her Journey in an introductory chapter, devotes the others to the diary of her odyssey in Persia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and at last India. A record of endurance which the reader is unlikely to follow with equal fortitude
Usually despatched in 2-5 working days.
