FIFTY-THREE-YEAR-OLD DORIS MARON SOLD EVERYTHING SHE OWNED, EXCEPT HER MOTORCYCLE AND A FEW PERSONAL BELONGINGS, TO LIVE A DREAM. On August 4, 2001, Maron left Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, on her 750cc Honda Magna to begin her journey around the world. During the next two years and eleven months, she traveled into forty four countries on six continents. Maron’s first book, Untamed Spirit, describes the first nineteen months of her journey. This second book chronicles the second half of her journey, beginning March 4, 2003, in Nepal. From there she traveled to China, India, Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, Morocco, Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, and Central America, finally completing her tour on June 30, 2004. Traveling mostly solo, she faced fears, doubts, and loneliness, but she gained a wealth of education that cannot be obtained from a textbook—making lasting friendships around the globe, experiencing other cultures, and satisfying her passion to see the world. Untamed Spirit II continues the story of Maron’s experiences traveling as a lone woman into countries around the globe. It’s a story of adventure and challenge—and of living a dream.
