Riding High: The Stories That Jupiter's Travels Didn't Tell By Ted Simon Cover Image


Riding High is packed with untold episodes from the Jupiter journey of Ted Simon's book Jupiter's Travels: his confrontations with a murderous military in Chile, his farcical arrest in India, bizarre customs in Thailand and Malaysia, his hilarious entanglements with a bottle of bad Dubonnet in Ecuador, and many more. Simon contrasts them with the touching and turbulent events that followed his return to domesticity, and explains what became of him in 'life after travel.'
