Untold Episodes from the Jupiter Journey
a book by Ted Simon
Riding High is packed with untold episodes from the Jupiter journey - his confrontations with a murderous military
in Chile, his farcical arrest in India, bizarre customs in Thailand and Malaysia, his hilarious entanglements with a
bottle of bad Dubonnet in Ecuador and many more. Simon contrasts them with the touching and turbulent events that
followed his return to domesticity, and explains what became of him in life after travel.
Simon is a versatile author who covers diverse subjects, but his preference is writing about his own travels, and the
insights they provide. His earlier book, Jupiter's Travels, which is a best seller in Europe, has had a cult
following among American motorcyclists for many years, but is only now becoming recognized here as a travel classic.
Riding High is a natural companion and sequel to that book.
