Purple Mountains: America from a Motorcycle by Notch Miyake

Only 1 left


Quick Overview

The subtle textures and colors that comprise America, sharpened by lonely miles amidst the splendor of the land as experienced by a Japanese motorcycler.


Spinning out the steady rhythm of the yellow line in his wake, author Notch Miyake sets out to experience the United States from the seat of his BMW GS. In intimate contact with his environment, Miyake relates his experience of contemporary America in lyrical prose, narration, and in dialogue with the people he meets. His perceptions become sharpened by lonely miles, a naturally keen eye for detail, and the splendour of the land he uncovers. Those of us who ride beyond our comfortable, safe, and familiar surroundings will nod in recognition at Miyake's narration of the many scenes familiar to solo motorcycle travel. Miyake's ride becomes an exploration of America and its people that is adventurous in its scope.
