Absolutely Fabulous Review of Lost Angel Walkabout-One Traveler's Tales

Lost Angel Walkabout by Linda Ballou is one of the most beautifully written travel books I have ever read. Linda tells her personal experiences of her many travels in different continents and environs. She is well-known as a top adventure travel writer, and her tales of her intrepid soul's search for beauty in the wilds and her ability to rouse physically to any demands of the setting will thrill the reader. She increased my desire to become more physically fit so that I could do some of the things she is daring and fit enough to do. She grew up in Alaska and has always loved horses. Her travel tales about returning to that wonderful environ and her experiences in many different places which involved riding horses are so beautifully inspiring. Linda also leads walkabouts in Los Angeles. I highly recommend her book as a treasure you will want to read, and then to re-read aloud to anyone who might want to listen. Her use of words is very commanding and her descriptions so vivid you will feel you have traveled alongside her and seen all the beauty of the surroundings which she so deeply appreciates. This is a MUST READ!

Hi Linda--

Just tried again with Internet Explorer, and it still says "All Fields Required" even though they are all populated correctly (to my eyeball at least :)).  I took a snapshot if you want to see it.

I saw your note about writing for the Examiner LA Outdoors section and I was letting you know about my site (, our forest adventure pass sales, and letting you know about the fee-free days coming up for the Southern California if you hadn't seen it yet.

Hi Linda--

I just tried to send you a quick note via your website's Contact Form, and it didn't seem to go through. Let me know if you didn't get it. Thanks!
