Peddling his bike (a bicycle…not motorcycle), writer and botanist Jim Malusa embarks on a unique journey to reach the lowest point on each continent, resulting in a six-year series of ‘anti-expeditions’ to the ‘anti-summits’. It’s here because of it’s superbly memorable narrative, written with a scientists keen observation of the flora, fauna and all around ‘wild’ life. These trips are creatively interesting, and the stories are exceptionally well-told. You’ll learn a lot, and probably will end up wanting to do some of this by motorcycle. Which of course is the idea. By Jim Malusa. Softbound, 6”x9”, 322 pp., b/w illus.
