“This fascinating World War II story of Clark’s father’s adventures seemingly touches on every continent while centered on his perilous flights from India across the Himalayas to resupply the Chinese, a perilous route known as “The Hump”. It’s part mystery thriller, part history class, part travelogue, and 100% page burning awesomeness.”

“Reading about Mary Clark’s travels is like reading a letter from an old friend who has written home about their last or best journey. Mary’s thoughtfulness shines through her writing, as does her genuine passion for the experience of travel as a whole.”
