ABOUT THE BOOK
Now available in reflowable e-book format for the Kindle and other e-book reading devices! The perfect companion to the motorcycle classic, Jupiter's Travels.
For four years during the 1970s Ted Simon rode a motorcycle around the world, something no-one had ever done before. He described his adventures first in regular bulletins for The Sunday Times and then, after his return, in Jupiter's Travels, a book that has become revered as a classic of travel writing. Published by Penguin, Jupiter's Travels has sold nearly a million copies in the intervening years and has remained in print throughout that time, remaining a strong seller even today. Ted Simon took a decent SLR camera on the trip, but only a handful of his several thousand color photographs were included in Jupiter's Travels. The 256-page hardcover print edition of this book was published in 2013 to coincide with the 40th anniversary of his ground breaking trip and now, for the first time, it is offered in eBook format (EPUB and MOBI for Kindle).
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Born to a German mother and a Romanian father, Ted Simon was brought up in England through World War II. He soon found himself impelled by an insatiable desire to explore the world that led him to abandon an early scientific career in favor of journalism, and he has worked for several newspapers and magazines on Fleet Street and elsewhere. He is also the author of The Chequered Year, Riding High, The River Stops Here, The Gypsy in Me and Rolling Through The Isles. After living for a long time in California he moved to the South of France in 2016.
