Description


For four years during the 1970s Ted Simonrode a motorcycle around the world, something no-one had ever done before. He described his adventures first in regular bulletins for "The Sunday Times" and then, after his return, in "Jupiter's Travels," a book that has become revered as a classic of travel writing.Published by Penguin, "Jupiter's Travels" has sold nearly a million copies in the intervening years and has remained in print throughout that time, remaining a strong seller even today. Ted Simon took a decent SLR camera on the trip, but only a handful of his several thousand color photographs were included in "Jupiter's Travels."These are now included in the book published to coincide with the 40th anniversary of his ground breaking trip.
