Safety Krcmarik

Laura Madeline Wiseman’s Safety Measures poignantly recounts her experiences making the daunting 4,300-mile journey from Washington to Maine – alone. She writes almost lyrically about her inner thoughts and concerns as she encounters the inevitable obstacles of taking such an epic journey as a woman alone on the often dangerous and unforgiving road. Filled with a mix of fascinating minutiae of each day and the delectably written details of the day, Wiseman conquers her adventure through the unpredictable terrain, the limits of her bike, and the strangers met along the way. The prevailing undertone throughout her book shows that safety concerns remain a constant companion for all women venturing out; they by no means define the possibilities.
