Enright ably documents the Johnsons' travels as well as the immense amount of planning and preparation — and promotion — needed to make them happen. She balances the detail and the action well, creating a full picture while not getting bogged down.
And she delves into the Johnsons' personal lives and relationship, revealing their feelings about what they were seeing and doing, teasing out small details about day-to-day life — such as Osa bathing daily in a canvas tub — and shining a light on a partnership that stands out as loving, stable and uncommonly equitable...
And the lives they led — lives of adventure, when adventure was more than cheap thrills, when it was exploring the truly unknown. The Johnsons made the unknown known, and did it with thoughtfulness and style; this biography does the same with the story of their lives
