Praise

A first-rate pleasure from the acclaimed graphic novelist Phelan. And this book – riveting, wondrously drawn, expertly paced – is a triumph in and of itself.
—The New York Times

With uncommon perception and a flair for visual drama, Phelan tracks three intrepid souls’ solo journeys around the world…Three true tales of adventure as grand and admirable in the telling as they were in the doing.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

A graphic novel that will appeal to aficionados of the form and any reader in search of engrossing true journeys.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

The stories encompass such national ideals as dogged can-do spirit, exploration, enterprise, and commercialism…the very essence of determination and adventure.
—Booklist (starred review)

Phelan invests each tale with its own distinct mood and style.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review)
