Summary

This is the true story of a young man’s epic bicycle journey from England to India. Traveling more than 8,000 miles, he encounters all manner of adventure, from the curious company of a butterfly in the wilds of Iran to the aftermath of a coup in Kandahar, Afghanistan; from navigating the foreign yet welcoming Muslim world, where he learns the basics of Islam, to the journey’s end in mystical India, where he arrives at an understanding of what it means to be free. William Spencer establishes himself as a writer to watch in his debut book, weaving masterful storytelling and cultural insights in a pause-resisting adventure.

Superb narration and inspirational story!

I felt like William was right next to me recounting tales from his journey over a cup of chai. Plenty of wisdom and vivid descriptions of adventures only someone with a consistent meditation practice like the author could recount. Thanks for publishing this gem of a book!
