From the dusty Montana Plains where Joey Chitwood and his Motorcycle Daredevils first inspired young Knievel, to his present struggle with Hepatitis C (his biggest obstacle ever), EVEL * WAYS captures the daredevil's roaring recounts, broken bones and octane-fueled dreams -- there are even a few roundabout confessions. Ultimately, Knievel's attitude captures the book's spirit and vice versa. As he says: "No prince, no king, no president has ever lived a better life than I have!" -- Publisher Comments
From the Publisher
EVEL*WAYS is as unique as Evel Knievel himself. The initial draft was a collection of his photographs and quotations. Then as Evel was waiting for a new liver, we started talking two or three times a week. Every time we spoke there was another incredible story - a missing piece of history. The book took on a new life with dialogue, more pictures and more highlights of Evel's amazing story.
I've always known Evel as the living legend - the daredevil. But over the past months, I learned to admire the real Evel. I'm in awe of his incredible memory of the people who have touched his life, his relentless spirit for adventure and his subtle sense of humor. EVEL*WAYS captures this attitude and his daring approach to life. Evel insists that he still is going to complete the autobiography he started in1972. I sincerely hope he does. There is so much more to tell. Enjoy reading EVEL*EAYS.
