Editorial Reviews

Review

'A clear unpretentious style that offers detailed and colourful descriptions of the sights, smells and flavours of the lands he rides through... the reading flows well.' --City Bike USA

'I was riveted right from the very beginning and enjoyed every minute of the three year adventure.' --CanyonChasers.com

'Those contemplating travel in Africa or S America could not find a better source to begin preparation. If like me you will never make such a journey, read this book and enjoy this wonderful motorcycle adventure vicariously.' --BMW Owners News MOA

'To categorize this book as just 'an adventure motorcycle travel book' limits the book's potential appeal to a broader audience.'
--Web Bike World

'Sam's descriptions are in Technicolor.' --TRD Magazine UK

From the Author

Hi, so what's the background to my third book 'Distant Suns'? Well, by the time I'd spent four years riding through Africa, Australia, New Zealand and then across Asia and the Middle East, I knew I couldn't 'just' stop. The bug had well and truely bitten. The prospect of going home just didn't appeal at all, and I knew now that there were so many more things in this amazing world of ours that I had to try to see. So I travelled on - back through Africa (for a very good reason) and then across to the vast and enthralling lands of  South and Central America.
This time I'm travelling with Birgit, who you'll have met first in my second book 'Under Asian Skies'. Why does 'Distant Suns' cover both Africa and the southern Americas? I'm afraid I'll be giving some of the game away if I tell you here and that would be a shame, so I think I'd better not. Sorry. Got to leave plenty for you to discover.
A completely different aspect of this book is that it's written based on Birgit's diarys rather than purely my own. She was a very important part of this journey and it was vital to me that she didn't get sidelined as 'the girlfriend'. She's certain she isn't a writer, so left that to me.
It was fascinating to see the things from each day that she'd considered important enough to write about in her journals. She is a fantastic observer and each of those observations brought memorys flooding back to me. Her journal has been of incredible value. I think you'll see what I mean and I hope you enjoy reading 'Distant Suns'.

These are some of the comments that readers have fed back to us. I'm inserting them here because in many ways I value readers feedback even more than those of magazines.
All the best,
Sam

Hi Sam
Just finished reading Distant Suns. A really enjoyable read. ...The descriptive passages serve to bring the experience alive for the reader...I would definitely consider it one of the best motorcycle travel books I have read. The key test is, would the reader bother to read the book again and the answer is definitely yes with all three of your books. Scott - Scotland

Hi Sam,
Love this book. I think it's the best of the three and it's even better reading from a woman's point of view. It's great to read about a girl on the road. You left me wanting more! What happened next?!
Thank you,
Nikki - UK

Having read Sam's two previous books. I was keen to follow his continuing journey. The previous books had given me a taste for the visual stimulation that only a well written travel book can give. You feel that you share the moment, drama and sense of excitement of his travels. Sam's latest book is no exception. Birgit as his travel companion gives a new light to his travels. Well done Sam. I hope others enjoy this book as much as I have. Dave - England

Hi Sam,
PLEASE stop keeping me awake at night! Every time I buy one of your books I find I can't put it down and all of a sudden its 4am! Seriously though. I've loved Distant Suns. Birgit is amazing. How does she put up with you? What courage! Can't wait for the next one. There will be one one there? Hugs to you both.
Shelly - USA

Another great adventure with Sam Manicom. This time he's riding with a partner and it adds a whole new dynamic. Reading as they explore new places you'll wish you were there, too. As a team they enjoy the highs and overcome the lows that are inevitable on such journeys. This was a great read and I highly recommend it.
