Short Ride in the Jungle : The Ho Chi Minh Trail by Motorcycle (Paperback) (Antonia Bolingbroke-kent)
About this item
This is not only the thrilling tale of a daring adventure on an aging motorcycle; it is also the story of Southeast Asia's legendary Ho Chi Minh Trail, and of a war, the effects of which can still be seen across the region and in the hearts of not only its people but of the many Americans whose lives were touched forever by it.
Follow Antonia as she retraces the footsteps and tank tracks of this famous supply line through the mountains and jungles of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. Alone on a diminutive pink motorcycle, she encounters bomb craters, unexploded ordnance, mud, mountains, jungle, disappointment, and triumph—and almost without fail, cheerful and generous people along her path.
