Carla has done a great job with this story. Well written, good story, honest, interesting, fun, enjoyable. I love travel and road stories (especially motorcycle journeys). When I pick one up, I want it to be just like this one. So often non-fiction road stories can be a bore or poorly executed. Not so, Carla King's American Borders. I would have given this 5 stars if it hadn't been for several poorly formatted places in the Kindle edition of this book. It's annoying to be going along and enjoying the book so much, then to have formatting errors wonder if you'd missed a passage or a page or ? If this gets fixed, I will gladly give it 5 stars.

Good work, Carla.

I read everything I can find on two wheeled travel, this book is very, very good. It's got it all, back roads of the US, Canada and Mexico, people... Karla actually talks to peole on the trip, sothing that many travel writers seem to forget to do. People make a trip not just the places you visit. Mechanical trouble..... its all there, and on top the fact that Karla is a great writer is a big bonus.

Traveling by Ural will always be a little different, but Karla gives you just enough about herself that you can become part of the journey not just a spectator.

Great read, loved it.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable read of one woman's distributor "sponsored" trip around the U.S. as a type of "shake down" of a Ural w/ sidecar. Both her descriptions of the ride, locations and people, as well as the challenges of frequent breakdowns and ways of dealing with them, with some support from the distributor were an enjoyable read (tho not some good experiences for her) and informative. Her route started in CA, went N, and accross S Canada and N US, then down the E and accross the S US, back to CA. It was 2937 Kindle pages long. Well worth it -- I recommend it.

I first read American Borders when it was on Carla's website, before it became a book. It was a great read and I never forgot it. Now that I've ridden around the country myself it carries a whole new attraction for me. If you want a well written and true account of what it's like to ride around the United States, this is the book for you. Sometimes it's hard to remember that the people she meets are real people, not characters in a novel they're so clearly portrayed. It's an insightful, well-written book about people more than motorcycling, which is its greatest charm.

This book added fuel to the fire within me to pursue my dream of traveling around the US on the back road. This book remind you of the good people out there who will enrich your lives.

The only reason I gave it a 4 star is because the book was not modified to fit the Kindle Fire cleanly. Otherwise it is a great read!
