Summary
Author and avid motorcyclist James Hesketh takes you with him on the 'straight and twisty' road he's traveled from addiction to recovery--his motorcycle with him every inch of the way. Drawing from archival information, cultural references, and interviews, Hesketh chronicles the changing history of motorcycle culture, beginning with the infamous 1947 Hollister Rally that inspired the 'biker image,' and progressing to the recovery lifestyle and motorcycling. Featuring 'insider' accounts by clean and sober riders, and illustrated with vivid photographs, this book is a must-read, not just for those who ride, but for anyone interested in recovery.
