9780099513599: Red Tape and White Knuckles

Unafraid of a challenge, Lois Pryce began the kind of adventure most of us could only ever dream of. She put on her sparkly crash helmet, armed herself with maps and a baffling array of visas, and got on her bike. Destination: Cape Town - and the small matter of tackling the Sahara, war-torn Angola and the Congo Basin along the way - this feisty independent woman's grand trek through the Dark Continent of Africa is the definitive motorcycling adventure. Colourful and hilarious, Red Tape and White Knuckles is an action-packed tale about following your dreams that will have you packing your bags and jetting off into the sunset on your own adventure before you know it.

About the Author:

Torn between the career paths of two illustrious relatives, Max Born, the Nobel Prize Winner in Physics and his granddaughter, Olivia Newton-John, Lois Pryce abandoned her interest in Quantum Theory at the age of 16, left school and spent the next couple of years as a carrot picker, painter and decorator and failing an audition as a kiss-o-gram before bowing to the inevitable and going into rock 'n roll. After various underpaid jobs in record shops and as a product manager in the Beeb, she decided to jack it all in and ride her trail bike from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego. Her on-line diary of her journey became a cult hit and led to her first book, Lois on the Loose. When not on her bike she is at home on her houseboat with husband Austin.

Review:

"Lois Pryce knows what it takes to be a fun, fearless female. She rode solo from London to Cape Town, with the barest of essentials" * Cosmopolitan * "A natural storyteller, she brings the African landscape to life in this funny, fast-paced travelogue" * Sainsbury's Magazine * "A gutsy tale of one woman and her bike, told with vigour and honesty....she manages to make the journey an enjoyable experience and a solid read. There are the usual chaotic scenes of jumble in border towns, and heart-warming tales of help en route. But there are also some genuinely chilling episodes and these make the book, and perhaps the journey, all too authentic" * Irish Times * "Lois Pryce defied convention when she decided to travel from London to Cape Town by motorcycle. Red Tape and White Knuckles reads like a non-fiction chick-lit adventure as the pasty skinned, heatstroke prone Pryce deals with cultural differences, Africa's troublesome roads and the company of various travellers she meets along the way" * Metro * "I really enjoyed this book...every chapter is filled with adventure and anecdotes about the people and situations she encounters along the way. It's a mix of hair-raising incidents, humorous episodes and serious insight into the history and cultural differences she experiences across the African continent. A travelogue with a difference, this would be a great read for the armchair adventurer, someone planning an African expedition or anyone who simply enjoys a good story!" * Candis *
