(2007-11-19)
(WOUB) - Imagine taking a trip from Argentina to New York City.

That's quite a distance.

Now, imagine doing it ON HORSEBACK.

That's what Marianne Du Toit did

Du Toit was a guest on W-O-U-B television's "Newswatch" program last (Friday) to talk about her 21 month journey and the book she wrote about it.

It's called "Crying with Cockroaches"

Du Toit - who was born in South Africa - had limited experience with horses at the time .and her book describes how she persevered despite times of heartbreak, frustration and hunger.
