Lost on Earth

Front Cover
Macmillan Publishers Aus., Sep 1, 2010 - Travel - 352 pages

"The only way I am coming home is by bike or by box," Steve Crombie writes when he first hits the road, travelling 90,000kms from Australia to the Arctic Circle via South America. It takes him two years. He suffers from dehydration, starvation and disease. He rebuilds his motorcycle four times.

Along the way Steve not only tests his limits but meets the world head on - waking up behind iron bars in Tierra Del Fuego; traversing the length of the Amazon with a 260 kilogram motorcycle in tow; evading pumas in Guyana; skimming across the Caribbean on a yacht with wanted criminals; dodging bullets in Nicaragua and finally paddling a few laps in the Arctic Ocean.

Lost on Earth is an adrenaline rush, taking the reader to the wilds of South America, with a man who made the dream of following a road less travelled into a reality. Hitch a ride.

It had me hooked from front to back! Inspirational, reminding us our inner demons and the treadmill of daily life can keep us bound. Well done Steve! Keep the trip reports coming.
