Mi Moto Fidel: Motorcycling Through Castro's Cuba Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Throughout the course of his three-month, 7,000-mile odyssey through Castros Cuba, Christopher Baker--thanks to his attention-getting vehicle--enjoyed instant entree to a people both deprived of and obsessed by chrome and motorized wheels. Bakers dazzling narrative introduces readers to a tremendous variety of Cubans in this penetrating and spellbinding travelogue--from tobacco growers and prostitutes to fishermen and impassioned dissidents. Revealing a vivacious people in the throes of a slow and painful transition, Baker takes us through his own gradual but profound change of heart about Castros regime. "Mi Moto Fidel is a rare work of warmhearted humor and considerable insight that mines the depths of Cubas troubled history and politics...and shines an unprecedented light on this stubbornly enigmatic country.

Synopsis:

The author recounts his three-month, seven-thousand-mile odyssey through Cuba, discussing Cuba's troubled history and politics and offering profiles of the colorful people he encountered along the way.

Synopsis:

National Geographic Adventure Press presents trade paper editions of four rare and extraordinary expedition accounts from writers who embody the spirit of adventure and discovery for which National Geographic is renowned.

The word "adventure" is virtually synonymous with the National Geographic Society, and these four riveting accounts of high adventure further blur any distinction.

In Mi Moro Fidel, Christopher P. Baker embarks on an epic, entertaining, and often poignantly revealing motorcycle journey through Cuba — the first ever attempted by a foreigner in all of Castro's 40-year reign.

As exciting as writing gets, National Geographic Adventure Press takes readers to the ends of the Earth — and to the limits of human experience.
