“About A Maverick USA Way:
A Maverick USA Way is the fifth in a series of unconventional travel memoirs by New Zealand author Mary Jane Walker. With 407 images, A Maverick USA Way describes Mary Jane’s adventures on the Amtrak rails, in the cities and in the wilderness.
Mary Jane took Amtrak trains around America and visited Glacier, Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Rocky Mountain and Yosemite National Parks before the snow hit. She loved the Smithsonian museums and after seeing a live dance at the American Indian Museum, she decided to go to Standing Rock. It was a protest over land rights and drinking water, at 30 below zero! She loved Detroit which is going back to being a park, and Galveston and Birmingham, Alabama. She was there during the 2016 elections and was not surprised Trump won. She was tired of being mistaken for being a homeless person because she had a backpack and left San Francisco because of it.
For the week of this promotion, A Maverick USA Way will be on Kindle Countdown, selling at 99 cents on Amazon.com in the USA (normally $5.99) and for 99 p on Amazon.co.uk in the UK (normally GBP 4.49).
Another book by Mary Jane, A Maverick New Zealand Way, was a finalist in Travel in the International Book Awards, 2018! Mary Jane has seven books in print, with more forthcoming.

Mary Jane has a blog called A Maverick Traveller and posts frequently on Medium, where she joined the ranks of Top Writers in Travel for a time in 2018. Her blog operates totally without commercial sponsorship, a fact rare in the world of serious travel blogging. A lot of her travel is off the beaten track and in places that aren’t touristy, including some of the more obscure parts of her own country. And all of it is authentic.
She has seven books published so far. Mary Jane first became a serious traveller when she joined the crew of a Chinese junk being sailed from Canton (now Guangzhou) to Paris by French hippies in the 1980s. Mary Jane holds a Masters’ degree in political studies and takes an interest in the politics and history of the countries she visits. Her hobbies include trekking and mountaineering, and there is a fair bit of both of those in her books as well.
Altogether, Mary Jane is a Maverick and has her own unique voice!
