Mother Nature Ain't Nobody's Mom Dec 8, 2003
I give this book five gold stars--five thumbs up--five pats on the back--five nods of joy. (See more about my work www.WordsBySusie.com) Lloyd Mardis takes his readers along with him on his cycling quest into the human spirit. You cannot read his new book, Mother Nature Ain't Nobody's Mom, without coming away feeling as if you have known this gentle and insightful guy forever. Mardis captures the landscape--both interior and exterior--of life. With each turn of the page, I found myself riding alongside Mardis, seeing the world and the people he met through his eyes and heart. This is a gem of a journey book. A must have for every bookcase. Check it out today--enjoy the cycling--enjoy the humor--enjoy the poignancy. Who knows? One day when you're out on the road cycling across the countryside, maybe you'll run into author Mardis--if so, I'd bet you'd be in for the adventure of a lifetime.
A page-turner Oct 30, 2003
My book club thoroughly enjoyed this book. Mr. Mardis' prose enabled us to settle into the rhythm of the road along with him, and we found much to savor in his humorous telling of his many adventures. We enjoyed his descriptions of small Texas towns, his retelling of local legends, and his stories of the interesting people he met along the way. His poetry reveals the sensory impact of months alone living outside and traveling through open country and the resulting self-knowledge. There are so many things to enjoy about this book that I found myself turning page after page, long into the night. I couldn't put it down.
Relax and enjoy the ride! Oct 18, 2003
Mr. Mardis's book is wonderful. It can be read from front to back, or as I have discovered by reading sections in no particular order. I find this a relaxing and enjoyable way to read his book! However, my favorite section, where I am able to get the feel of the trip, is his poetry. Here the nitty-gritty, the tedium, the every-inch of the trip is (gratefully) accepted and absorbed, and his experiences come alive for me - the very tedium of cycling mile after mile is the very stuff of exhilaration. Mother nature is present to enjoy, to battle, to accept, to be amazed at, to be part of, but never, ever taken for granted or ignored!!! Thanks for the ride.

Being a class mate of Lloyd's back in Indiana. and hearing about his bike rides, I was a little sceptible of how interesting a book on riding a bicycle and camping could be. Well I was quite surprised at how interesting traveling through the country on a bicycle could be along with the humor, discriptions of his surroundings and historic facts presented in a form that kept my attention. I live in Florida now and will recommend it to my friends.
Good luck on this and future books.
Very good book. Oct 5, 2003
Very good. Makes you want to travel. Only give few books 5 stars, and this is one of them. Worth the time, give it a try.
