This book proves that true experience does indeed soundly trump fiction at times. Shattered by the deaths of his daughter and wife, Neil Peart (drummer/lyricist of Rush) heads out on his trusty R1100GS for a fifty-five thousand mile, fourteen-month odyssey of healing and self-discovery that takes him across large portions of the continent. Driven by will and a deep reluctance to turn back, …to what?, he eventually finds reconciliation and peace, as well as a fresh start that we won’t spoil here. In short, quite a tale, told by a talented writer and flush with entertaining and moving scenes from his adventures. By Neil Peart. Softbound, 6"×9", 460 pp., no illus.
