9780156007047: Zero to Sixty: the Motorcycle Journey of a Lifetime (Harvest Book)

Nearing sixty, diagnosed with heart disease and feeling his mortality, Gary Paulsen buys his first Harley-Davidson and rides from his home in New Mexico to Alaska-and from the present into his past, through the landmarks of a singular life. Paulsen's journey is peopled with familiar faces, from the tough cop who saved him from juvenile delinquency to the prostitute whose career advice stopped him from quitting the army. And the work he does while on his bike-the work of mapping his life to find meaning-is of a piece with the pure sweat and muscle of youthful days spent on farms in Minnesota, or at the bottom of septic tank pits in Colorado, or wrangling dogsleds through the Alaskan wilderness. Amid the silence and beauty of running the road on his Harley, Paulsen celebrates the comforts of hard work, the thrill of challenge met bravely, and the peculiar joys of life lived to its fullest.

Review:

"[Paulsen's] anecdotes, by turns lyrical, moving and hilarious, reflect a rare clarity of mind and expression and are written in a stark, driving prose style . . . always leavened by a wry, often self-deprecating humor. . . . A book oddly magical from start to finish.-The Washington Post
