The book offers a seldom experienced perspective of a bygone era. Riding along with the author is a unique romp through a more adventuresome era. Reminiscent of the cowboy of the old west, young Mr. Fulton sets out on an impetuous journey around the world on a motorcycle. He adeptly extricates himself from one tight spot after another while attempting to capture as much of his ramblings as possible on film. Between attempts to keep his machine running, maneuvering around bureaucratic obstacles and warring factions, he never fails to elicit colorful descriptions of his surroundings and encounters. A good read.
