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.Alle Produktbeschreibungen
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.
