Book Description

1 April 2008
An exploration of the borders between the United States, Canada, and Mexico on an unreliable Russian Ural motorcycle with sidecar becomes a comedy of breakdowns in small towns all around America. This four-month, 10,000-mile adventure spans moments of blissful backroads freedom, cultural connection, and roadside romance—interrupted by cracked welds, electrical gremlins, evil tow-truck drivers, tornadoes, and hurricanes. From British Columbia to the Blue Ridge, Boquillas to Beverly Hills, this is an intimate exploration of the United States and its neighbors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great motorcycle travel book! 10 April 2009
Format:Paperback
American Borders: A Solo Circumnavigation of the United States on A

I read a lot of these books and this one is one I will keep and read again! Almost as good as Lois on the loose, which is another good read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing. 29 Dec 2011
Format:Paperback
Bought primarily as a result of the reviews on this site and the urge to read an "adventure travel" book. I soldiered on to the end in the forlorn hope that the author would get into her stride as the book progressed. This book lacks the humour of Lois Pryce's books or the depth and detail of Sam Manicom's publications.There are better books out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for motorcyclists 27 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback
This is a very interesting and unusual (and true) tale of a young lady who toured the borders of the US and into Canada in order to test-drive a Ural motorcycle with sidecar when these vehicles were being introduced to the US in the last few years. She meets some interesting people along the way and has the usual array of technical problems, creatively resolved. It's actually quite a page-turner! Recommend that a copy be bought for all bike clubs to be lent around.
