Iconic Baja California, surrounded by the pounding Pacific Ocean and crystal calm Sea of Cortez, is an isolated and proud land woven together by ancient myths, legends and amazing true stories. Zoe captures the spirit of this beautiful, awe-inspiring and intriguing place on a solo 3000 mile adventure "on the roads less travelled," encountering a myriad of surprises along the way. She quickly falls under its magical spell and discovers the authentic and unique side of Baja and its people, who are so culturally diverse and proudly different from the rest of Mexico. The landscapes are extreme, sometimes unforgiving, but always spellbinding. Rich fertile valleys merge into arid cacti-strewn deserts. Mountains melt into forests and the wildest beaches and bays, home to the richest diversity of marine life. Reflecting life "out on the road," Zoe also digs up a treasure trove of her other travel story gems and cleverly intertwines them with this story.
