An Incredible Motorcycling Journey
a book by Robert E. Fulton, Jr.

Inventor, sculptor, architect, writer, filmmaker, poet, humanist, and world-traveling motorcyclist: they don't make men like Robert Fulton, Jr. anymore. Fulton's legendary journey began in 1932 when he set out on his Douglas twin motorcycle for an eighteen-month odyssey that included Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, India, Sumatra, Malaysia, Siam, Indonesia, China and Japan--challenging destinations that, even today, would give pause to the most world-weary traveler. Back then, only a special brand of hero would even consider such a journey--but of course, that's exactly what Fulton was. His customized bike had an extra large fuel tank, a secret hiding place for his .32 revolver, and enough room in his luggage for a motion-picture camera and 40,000 feet of film.

His entertaining, detailed story tells of falling from a bridge in Turkey, being held up by hundreds of robbers in Waziristan, having his camera confiscated in Afghanistan, being offered a tiger cub (the animal, not the motorcycle) for $2 in Malaysia, put in jail as a smuggler in Indonesia, and being escorted across Japan by 33 motorcycles. Follow the courageous voyage of a modern Renaissance man who, with an enormous appetite for life, did not stop at dreams. You'll discover a fascinating part of our world that's been lost forever, and see it through the eyes of one of this century's greatest spirits.

Originally published in 1937, the book went through three editions in two years, received a glowing endorsement from The New York Times Book Review, and sold thousands of copies worldwide. Whitehorse Press is proud to reprint the paperback edition of this classic tale of world adventure, featuring Fulton's own photographs, maps and charts.
