From the cover: “In Right to the Edge, Charley Boorman is back in the saddle for a brand-new, adrenaline-fuelled adventure. Whether he’s pushing a bike to its limits in the tangled jungles of Papua New Guinea or navigating the crazy streets of Manila with a biker gang known as the ‘Mad Dogs’, Charley approaches each new experience with his trademark humour and enthusiasm.

His journey begins — naturally enough — by bike, as he races 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, where he is made welcome by a remote tribe almost untouched by the outside world.

Exploring Indonesia, Charley attends both an unexpected wedding and an astounding funeral. He drives a tuk-tuk made of bamboo in the Philippines 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 the reader on an incredible journey 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.”
