Backblocks America: Jo and Gareth Morgan take on the States, Mexico and Canada

N/A

This is the story of Jo and Gareth's latest trip. Backblocks America is a roadtrip of discovery. They start at St Augustine, Florida where the first European settlement was made in 1565 by the Spanish, and eventually wander to the Alaskan coast on the Arctic Ocean, where much earlier the Indians arrived.

Along the route they take in the history and music of the South, from the War of Independence, to the Civil War to the Civil Rights Movement, country music, rock and roll and the Blues. Into Mexico then up the Rockies from Santa Fe to Alaska. Finally turning south they ferry through the Inner Passage to the top of Vancouver Island and begin riding down the West Coast to journey's end at Los Angeles. A trip of some 22,000 kms - and it was a real education.

This book is structured differently to Silk Riders in that it's not a straight chronological story of a motorcycle journey. This time it's being written thematically with chapter headings like Voyages of Discovery; Sounds of America; In God We Trust; Dubyaland: Politics; Cowboys and Indians; America in Black and White; Fast Food (Abomi)nations; The Melting Pot; High and Low Technology; Blacktops and Truckstops; Wildlife and Roadkill; Haves and Have-nots; and Easy Riding.

Paperback, 2007, 238pages, new with sale strip on edge
