This lovely book tells the real-life story of Laura Bingham’s journey across South America, an epic 7000km solo bike ride across the Andes mountains!
Laura’s wish is that the story of her own extraordinary adventure, illustrated in Laura Wall’s bold and evocative style, will inspire children worldwide to seek their own adventures and to always follow their dreams.
Research has shown that playing and learning outdoors can significantly increase a child’s resilience, confidence and wellbeing, and the added benefits of cycling and exercise also bring well-recognised benefits for both fitness and mental health, something that Laura is passionate about.
Laura says: ‘I wanted to share my experience with children in the hope of inspiring them to live a life more wild, to dream, to explore and interact directly with the environment around them. It’s said that the only limitation is that of your imagination, and the opportunity to inspire a new generation of explorers, adventurers and children intrigued and fascinated by our world is so important to me.’
