Down and Out in Patagonia, Kamchatka, and Timbuktu: Greg Frazier's Round and Round and Round the World Motorcycle Journey

cover, Down and Out in Patagonia, Kamchatka, and Timbuktu
Edition year: 2014
HorizonsUnlimited description:

A little over 40 years ago, a man named Gregory W. Frazier got on his motorcycle, went for a ride, and never returned. He’s still out there, circumnavigating the globe: exploring the jungles of Asia in the winter, trout fishing in Alaska in the summer, and covering all points in between during the rest of the year.

He’s been shot at by rebels, jailed by unfriendly authorities, bitten by snakes, run over by Pamplona bulls, and smitten by a product of Adam's rib. He's circled the globe five times and has covered well over one million miles (and counting).

During those past four decades, Dr. Frazier has been chronicling and photographing his around-the-world adventures, publishing 13 books on the subject (including one previous title for Motorbooks), the majority of which have been manuals for touring specific locations or general how-to-tour-by-motorcycle books. He has also produced 9 documentary DVDs on the same subject. But until now, nothing in print has encompassed the entirety of his worldwide motorcycle adventures.

Now, for the first time, he has written his on-the-road autobiography that captures the whole of his extraordinary travels in words and images. Down and Out in Patagonia, Kamchatka, and Timbuktu tells the amazing ongoing story of Dr. Frazier, one of the world’s single most well-traveled motorcyclists.

Grant says: Just got my copy, and have to say Gregory has outdone himself this time. Liberally illustrated with great photos from around the world, lots of fascinating people, places and stories in Gregory's typical laid back style. Recommended!
