Pedaling to Hawaii: A Human-Powered Odyssey

Pedaling to Hawaii: A Human-Powered Odyssey Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On a rainy, miserable morning in Paris, a twenty-something bureaucrat decides there must be more to life than dull office work. Stevie Smith tries to figure out what he could do of great significance and hit upon the notion of a trip around the world using only human power—no motors, no sails, no balloons—maybe the last great first. With no experience, no particular expedition skills, and no money, the adventure begins. A pedal-powered boat, a bike, in-line skates, and a lot of non-heroics take Stevie and his buddy, Jason, where no one has gone before. No travel writing has more accurately captured the old adage, "it's the journey that matters, not the destination." Therein lies the simple beauty of this entertaining travel tale—a search for simplicity, integrity, and freedom.

Synopsis:

An amazing and deeply insightful account of how two guys decided to embark upon the unthinkable: an attempt to circumnavigate the globe using just human-powered means.
