The Devil Can Ride: The World's Best Motorcycle Writing Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Authors, poets, and songwriters like Tom Waits, Arlo Guthrie, Hunter Thompson, and Robert Pirsig have written about the motorcycle, that icon for outlaws, rebels, thieves, and beat poets. This collection of motorcycle tales features the best of the vast collection of motorcycle writing created since old Gottlieb Daimler first bolted a crude internal-combustion engine to his wooden two-wheeled Einspur in 1876. In addition to essays from writers like Thompson and Pirsig, The Devil Can Ride features writers like Peter Egan, Fred Hafele, Patrick Symmes, Ewan McGregor, and Jim Rogers. Photographs, old posters, tickets, and other appropriate art and memorabilia illustrate this literary collection. The book features: Peter Egan Fred Hafele, Rebuilding the Indian Patrick Symmes, Chasing Che Ted Simon Ewan McGregor, Long Way Round Robert E. Fulton Jr, One Man Caravan Dave Barr, Riding the Edge Werner Bausenhar, Africa: Against the Clock on a Motorcycle; Into the Den of the Bear and the Lair of the Dragon on a Motorcycle Ron Ayres, Against the Wind Michael Fong, A Tankful of Time Rik K. Haffar, Away From My Desk Flash Gordon MD, Blood, Sweat & Gears Steve Krzystyniak, Bitten by the Bullet Jonathan Gregson, Bullet Up the Grand Turk Road Chris Scott, Desert Travels Maxwell Gardiner, Four Legs, Two Wheels and Half a Brain Tom Cunliffe, Good Vibrations Ann Ferrar, Hear Me Roar Hunter S.
