Description

Back on his bike for a brand-new adventure, Charley Boorman explores the world's second largest country - home to some of the most stunning and challenging terrain known to man. #Canada is a country of extremes, and Charley knows all about pushing things to the limit. He goes dirt biking in New Brunswick; dives through old shipwrecks in the freezing waters off Tobermory; kayaks through the Manitoban wilderness and the swirling rapids of the Bloodwein River; takes a ride through the Badlands of Saskatchewan along Butch Cassidy's old Outlaw Trail; and heads deep into the eerie but beautiful caves of Vancouver Island. But this trip is not just about physical challenges; it's also the perfect opportunity to meet a fascinating mix of people. As he heads east to west across Canada, Charley plays ice hockey with a legend of the game; spends a day as a cadet with the Mounties; works with lobster catchers and dinosaur hunters and nearly meets a ghost in Winnipeg. As ever, Charley jumps at every new experience with enthusiasm and humour. The result is a fast-paced, hugely entertaining travel book, packed with adventure (and rather a lot of mosquitoes).
