A clear-eyed travelogue of a changing world as seen from the saddle and side-car of a Harley-Davidson. Two Hungarian friends tackle tantamount challenges in an eight year quest to ride their way around the globe. Together they experience the riches of sultans, dire poverty in remote villages, the ever-present danger of wild animals and extreme riding conditions that would prove challenging to even today’s high-tech motorcycles. An engaging read, augmented with fascinating maps and photographs, that offers a unique view into the diversity of cultures during this time period between World Wars. By Zoltan Sulkowsky. Hardcover, 6”x9”, 413 pp., b/w illus.
