Book Description

15 April 2005
INTO THE WIND In 20th century America, young men discovered their rites of passage toward manhood by working on the farm, joining the military or attending college. In 21st century America, the rite of passage for most boys becomes blurred in the confusion of the changing roles of men and women. 'INTO THE WIND' offers teenagers a window into the world of two teens about to discover what it is to become young men by adventuring to Alaska. The boys do not know what is ahead of them, but they seek their fortunes. They face not only danger, but their own shortcomings in the midst of challenges. Whether it's arm wrestling the meanest mountain man in Alaska or witnessing a grizzly- moose conflict in the wilds-each boy grows in his own way. It features Trevor who laughs at life, who loves life and takes risks-often foolish ones. His brother, Dan, tries to moderate him to no avail, yet, the younger boy learns life's lessons and proves it. Nothing can keep Trevor's humor and passion for life in check. By the action of the two main characters, it covers honesty, humor, relationships, personal responsibility, personal crisis, ecology, hard work and a sense of wonder with the natural world.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than you expect... 27 May 2005
By Michael J. Machuga - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
A hundred years ago, Tom Sawyer and Jim rafted down the Mississippi River on an astounding journey that carried them into amazing adventures. They encountered two drunken charlatans, escaped great danger and discovered the magic of Old Man River. Teenagers and adults across America love Mark Twain's classic tale of life on the Mississippi.

Today, however, teens love fast video games, air hockey and skateboard parks. They race BMX bicycles and ride dirt track motorcycles. They love faster adventures.

A "Motorcycle Adventure to Alaska" grabs readers like a dirt track knobby tire and doesn't let go for teens in the 21st century. Written by long time motorcycle adventure feature writer, Frosty Wooldridge, the characters Trevor and Dan Compton ride a new kind of river made of asphalt and gravel while their raft turns into iron steeds with tires and rumbling exhaust pipes.

This is a book about two boys coming of age. Ever the rambunctious teenager, Trevor rides into danger with fearless abandon, but rides himself and his brother into plenty of trouble. He is a wild-eyed explorer who loves nothing better than telling outrageous stories to strangers. Trevor hitches up his leathers while becoming Buckskin Trevor of the mountain men, Fishbait Trevor who catches the biggest fish in Alaska and Mad Trapper Trevor who chases after the gold and many more. He is funny, crazy and a pain in the butt for his brother. But he's got what every young boy wants! Heart! Courage! Confidence in his life!

Once they hit Alaska, Trevor and Dan find themselves in the middle of a Mountain Man Rendezvous that begins a remarkable series of shooting flint lock rifles, tomahawk throwing contests, eating raw fish and battling the biggest man in Alaska in an arm wrestling contest. From there, they face a grizzly, fight some bad guys, fish for the biggest salmon in Alaska while viewing Denali "The Great One" the highest peak in North America.

Something magical happens along the way. The boys mature into young adults with a sense of responsibility to themselves, animals, the planet and others. This book is a heck of a read for teenagers, but as the endorsements explain, more than a few adults will be reading this book for the sheer pleasure of an adventure they wished they had taken as teenagers. If you like motorcycles, you're going to love this ride! Adults who love motorcycle adventure will find this book teaches their kids values, responsibilities, hard work and character pay off in the life process.
