Overview

Charley Boorman is back in the saddle for a brand-new, adrenaline-fuelled adventure!

He begins his journey racing north from Sydney up the Gold Coast, where he hitches a ride in a Spitfire. In Papua New Guinea he takes a hand-made canoe through tropical rainforest to stay in a remote tribal village almost untouched by the outside world. He drives a tuk-tuk made of bamboo in the Philippines, rides with the Mad Dog biker gang in Manila and eats deep-fried crickets in Taiwan before reaching his final destination in Tokyo.

From active volcanoes to coffee plantations to hilltop monasteries, Charley takes an exhilarating ride through some of the most spectacular countries in the world. Fast paced and fascinating, Right to the Edge is a gripping read from one of our very best travel-adventure writers.
