Peter Egan, long time editor-at-large and columnist with America's finest automotive monthly, "Road & Track", presents the best of his travel writing features from the period 1983 to 1996.
The prolific Egan has a way with words! Each of the 30 features carries you with him through diverse countryside, townscapes and cultures in a wide variety of captivating cars.
Two examples: he winds his way to the Himalayan foothills in an Indian-built, British designed taxi - "The Road to Everest" - in 1986, or drives his heart and soul out in Italy in an open Ferrari two-seater - "The Mille Miglia and the Great Yellow Beast" - in 1993.
New especially for this book are his introductions to each chapter - in each one Peter looks back with the benefit of hindsight to charm the reader some more.
This is travel writing at its very best from the incomparable, self-effacing, nostalgia-driven Peter Egan.
