Lost Angel Walkabout by Linda Ballou is one of the most beautifully written
travel books I have ever read. Linda tells her personal experiences of her many
travels in different continents and environs. She is well-known as a top
adventure travel writer, and her tales of her intrepid soul's search for beauty
in the wilds and her ability to rouse physically to any demands of the setting
will thrill the reader. She increased my desire to become more physically
fit so that I could do some of the things she is daring and fit enough to do.
She grew up in Alaska
and has always loved horses. Her travel tales about returning to that wonderful
environ and her experiences in many different places which involved riding
horses are so beautifully inspiring. Linda also leads walkabouts in Los Angeles. I highly
recommend her book as a treasure you will want to read, and then to re-read
aloud to anyone who might want to listen. Her use of words is very commanding
and her descriptions so vivid you will feel you have traveled alongside her and
seen all the beauty of the surroundings which she so deeply appreciates. This
is a MUST READ!
