17. Juni 1999 Harvest Book
Nearing sixty, diagnosed with heart disease and feeling his mortality, Gary Paulsen buys his first Harley-Davidson and rides from his home in New Mexico to Alaska-and from the present into his past, through the landmarks of a singular life. Paulsen's journey is peopled with familiar faces, from the tough cop who saved him from juvenile delinquency to the prostitute whose career advice stopped him from quitting the army. And the work he does while on his bike-the work of mapping his life to find meaning-is of a piece with the pure sweat and muscle of youthful days spent on farms in Minnesota, or at the bottom of septic tank pits in Colorado, or wrangling dogsleds through the Alaskan wilderness. Amid the silence and beauty of running the road on his Harley, Paulsen celebrates the comforts of hard work, the thrill of challenge met bravely, and the peculiar joys of life lived to its fullest.

Mehr über den Autor

Gary Paulsen wurde 1939 geboren und verbrachte seine frühe Kindheit bei der Großmutter im Norden Minnesotas. Ursprünglich war Paulsen Elektrotechniker beim Militär, bis er eines Nachts beschloss, Schriftsteller zu werden - ohne jemals etwas geschrieben zu haben.
Nach elf Monaten veröffentlichte er seine erste Kurzgeschichte und schrieb mehrere unbeachtete Bücher, bis er die Geschichte eines Eskimojungen veröffentlichte, der auf eine Schlittenhund-Reise geht.
Das Buch "Dogsong" gewann den Newbery-Preis, den renommiertesten Kinderliteraturpreis der USA.
Danach wurde für Paulsen alles anders: Er war ein berühmter und erfolgreicher Autor. Es folgten zwei weitere Newbery-Preise, einen davon erhielt er für "Allein in der Wildnis", dessen Fortsetzung "Zurück in die Wildnis" bei CARLSEN erschien. Gary Paulsens Bücher, in 18 Sprachen übersetzt, haben sich auch hierzulande einen festen Leserkreis erobert.



"[Paulsen's] anecdotes, by turns lyrical, moving and hilarious, reflect a rare clarity of mind and expression and are written in a stark, driving prose style . . . always leavened by a wry, often self-deprecating humor. . . . A book oddly magical from start to finish.-The Washington Post


The author describes his motorcycle journey through Minnesota and the Rockies to the Alaskan Highway, recalling the events in his life that have made him the man he is today.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Warning-Reprint-Title Change Only 1. Mai 2000
This book is a reprint of Pilgrimage On a Steel Ride written in 1997. Do not be fooled by the new name, cover and ISBN number as I was. Don't get me wrong, I admire Mr Paulsen's work and have purchased in the past (and will continue to do so in the future) every book he has written for my public library partons. B-U-T I feel the publisher is remiss in not stating up front that this book is a renamed reprint of an earlier book. True, on the back cover near the bottom in very tiny writing you will find the information but only after you have purchased the book over the internet will you see this disclaimer. Perhaps the publisher was thinking more of traditional book store sales where you can actually see the back of the book and read a few lines, but if so they were very shortsighted.

Zero to Sixty is a great story about a motorcycle trip around North America. It tells of the whole trip and throughout the book splits off to tell of what led up to it. How he started on a bike with playing cards tied to the fork to make it sound like a dirt bike and how he progressed to a Harley. I liked this book because it was realistic and interesting. There were problems to solve, memories to recolect and some parts were just left to the imagination. Gary Paulsen once again uses his great skill as an author to captivate the reader's attenion throughout the book.

I bought the book after someone recommended it and because of the positive feedback it got here.
I just finished it and still not understand why he wrote it and what he tried to say with it. Aparently he sees himself as a tough guy who at the age of fifty something finds out that he wants to by a Harley and ride from home to Alaska on it. He does not really tell much about the trip itself but puts in some memories of his life which are neither particularily impressive nor interesting in my view, and have nothing to do with the trip.
He is a bit unlucky with the weather as it seems (lots of rain) and falls over with the bike from time to time. Well, that happens with a bike that is not really suited for that trip.
Anyway, many people have done that trip (or much more amazing ones) on bikes, even in winter, without feeling the need to write books.

The book in my view one of those which the world could nicely do without. Books play an important part in life and I hardly ever throw one away. This one I did as soon as I had finished reading.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The book rocks! 18. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Have always been a believer that there is truth on the road, and Paulsen's chrome and leather epiphany - not too late, fortunately - is better than all the other books he wrote for money - this one's for soul. As an ex-BMW rider, I was convinced that the Harley spirit is what saved him.
