An anthology of the best motorcycle literature from top authors including Hunter S. Thompson, Thomas McGuane, Robert Pirsig, Roald Dahl, Alberto Granado, and T. E. Lawrence
Sons of Thunder is a high-octane anthology that brings together the best in motorcycle writing.
This unique collection includes seminal pieces from Hunter S. Thompson and Robert Pirsig. Melissa Holbrook Pierson and Thomas McGuane offer probing reflections on the relationship between rider and machine. Roald Dahl waxes poetic on the second-hand Ariel 500cc he bought as a sixteen-year-old. There are classic dispatches from the road including T. E. Lawrence's travels on his Brough Superior, Alberto Granado's storied rides with Che Guevara, and Theresa Wallach's overland journey with Florence Blenkiron from London to Cape Town. This anthology also offers hidden gems, such as Mike Carter's midlife meditation "Uneasy Rider" and Jim Perrin's "Travels with a Harley." Facing more than just the elements of the road, these riders simultaneously take physical and emotional journeys, surrendering to the mental release a bike brings. Danger lurks around every bend, but above all is the rider's desire for speed, the constant craving to go faster and further than one has ever gone before.
At times literary and lyrical, at others tactile and thrilling, Sons of Thunder takes to the road with an all-star roster of writers who delve into the pleasures and perils of motorcycles and celebrate the emotional bond between rider and machine.
