I have great admiration for Dervla Murphy; she has written many travel books in her life, some of which have made it to my reading lists; as a youngster on a bicycle to Afghanistan and as an distinguished lady of respectable age in Laos. Somewhere in between these books she wrote “Eight Feet in the Andes” (1983), where she tells of her travels in Peru, with daughter and donkey. And here again I admire her travel spirit, walking from Cajamarca in the north to Cusco in the south, in the process crossing many high passes, and equally many deep valleys. It is just that there is not much to tell, at least not in the first 100 pages, after which I put the book away. How many times can you describe the no doubt spectacular views, how many times can you elaborate on how difficult it was to find the path? The people she meets on the way, very few, are shy and evasive, and even if they meet up with Ms Murphy for a little longer, they remain strangers; I suspect this has to do with Ms Murphy’s limited Spanish language abilities, something she refers to herself several times. So, great trip, but not such a great travelogue. ( )

Written in the 80's a wonderful travelogue with a middle aged woman, a 9 year old girl and a mule. Walking for about 4 months in the wilds of peru. I love Dervla Murphy's spirit and wish my daughter of around the same age would be as stoic. ( )

Travels in Peru in the early 80s retracing the steps of the early conquistadors. Here you will get to know why South America runs at 100rpm, the mestizos vs the native indians.

Now waiting for my next set of books to arrive at SCCL.

Dervla and her nine year old daughter, Rachel, walk 1300 miles through the Andes of Peru from Cjamarca to Cuzco, tracing the same route of the Spanish conquishtadores in 1533.

Dervla and Rachel are accompanied by Juana, their mule--hence the 'eight feet' in the title. Juana is more than a pack animal, she is a caring friend on their otherwise friendless treck.

Dervla Murphy is an award-winning author of more than ten books recounting her fascinating adventures on foot, mule and bicycle.
