Across 20,000 miles of increasingly tough terrain, actor and motorcycle fanatic Ewan McGregor and his best friend Charley Boorman chase the dream of riding completely around the world. Long Way Round is the result of their adventures, a fascinating, frank and highly entertaining account of the exploits of two friends as they chase their shadows through Europe, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Russia, across the Pacific to Alaska, through Canada and into America. Against all the odds they realise their dreams. The epic journey was charted in the hugely popular television series, and became an international bestseller when the book was first published. This edition features many colour pictures taken during the pair’s travels.
