Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Cycling is a good way to travel anywhere, but especially in Africa. You are independent and mobile, and yet travel at `people speed` - fast enough to move on to another town in the cooler morning hours, but slow enough to meet people: the old farmer at the roadside who raises his hand and says, `You are welcome,` the tireless women who offer a smile to a passing cyclist, the children whose laughter transcends the humblest home." So begins the text of Neil Peart`s extraordinary journal about riding a bicycle on the roads and off the beaten track in West Africa. This is a meditative, thought-provoking book by a perceptive and compassionate rock music superstar who finds himself far from the usual comforts of home. Neil Peart is the drummer and lyricist of the legendary rock band Rush. Masked Rider is about the bike trek and the people who travel along with the author, including literary sidekicks Aristotle and Vincent Van Gogh. Sometimes it's the story of `the bike ride from hell` as he suffers the pains of dysentery and stares down the muzzle of a drunk soldier's machine gun. Other times it's a journey of exalted discovery and African adventure of the highest calibre. Rush is soon to release a new album in 2002 and tour extensively throughout the U.S., performing at major arenas and concert halls for their devoted fans.
