The true story of a persistent woman and an extraordinary journey, India Bound is the sequel to East: A Woman on the Road to Kathmandu. After traveling overland to India and Nepal, Shelley Buck has returned to Europe, but is haunted. She dreams of going back to Asia and of becoming a journalist. It's the early 1970s. Women don't often set out to become intrepid journalists, but Shelley can't help herself and she makes plans. This time she will take a typewriter.
"An energetic, candid remembrance of the compelling moments that shape a young reporter's career." —Kirkus Reviews
“India Bound is more than a travel adventure. It is Shelley Buck’s personal journey as well, revealing the defining moments in which she discovers her power as a woman and the future course of her life. Her discoveries grow from an acute understanding of her emerging self in its historical setting during the dawn of modern feminism as she interacts with both Western and Eastern cultures.”
