Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dysentery, drunken soldiers, and corrupt officials provide the background for Neil Peart's physical and spiritual cycling journey through West Africa. The prolific drummer for the rock band Rush travels through African villages, both large and small, and relates his story through photographs, journal entries, and tales of adventure, while simultaneously addressing issues such as differences in culture, psychology, and labels. Literary and artistic sidekicks such as Aristotle, Dante, and Van Gogh join Peart and his cycling companions, reminding the reader that this is not just another travel book—it is a story of both external and introspective discovery and adventure.

Synopsis:

Accompanied by literary and artistic sidekicks such as Aristotle, Dante, and van Gogh, the author of "Ghost Rider" conducts a voyage of body and mind on a bicycle adventure through West Africa. 12 photos.

interesting perspective. africans want to know what tribe you are from, europeans want to know what country you are from, and americans want to know what you do for a living... very good story. (And this is from someone who really does'nt like Rush)
