This extraordinary account of a remarkable journey made in
1933, through Iraq, Iran and Baluchistan (now part of Pakistan) to India
is packed full of wonder, adventure, determination and love of travel
and motorcycles. But what really sets this book apart are the wonderful
descriptions of the people and cultures, now nearly forgotten, yet still
hugely relevant in today’s age: all brought evocatively to life
by the stunning photos from 1933. At that time, the idea of travelling
to India on a motorcycle through the Middle East was considered
impossible; there were often no roads, not even any paths, and they were
attempting to cross the burning deserts in the middle of August, on a
tiny two-stroke motorcycle with barely enough power for the bike and
rider, let alone a pillion passenger! This book is more than a fantastic
adventure; it also offers some perceptive insights into the peoples,
places and cultures of the time, as well as being full of drama, both
personal and mechanical, as the motorcycle is urged on across the
shimmering sands. A true window on the past – and a book which is
definitely a ‘must have’ for all travel and motorcycle
enthusiasts.
