Sam Manicom's dynamic fourth book is an enticing yet frequently challenging motorcycle journey across the dramatic landscapes of Mexico, the United States and Canada. Sam's partner Birgit is no longer a novice motorcyclist - riding through southern Africa and South America turned her into a rider capable of facing any challenge. But Sam was worried. As they arrived into North America they had been travelling around the world by motorcycle for six years and he was beginning to think that North America was going to be easy; too easy in fact.

I had already enjoyed the written manuscript by Sam Manicom, but to have the story told by the author himself brings a different life to the tales of his journey. As always, Sam brings strongly the human side of worldly exploration, the motorcycle Libby being simply the accomplice.

Tortillas to Totems is worth the read for any aspiring traveler to the Americas, in any vehicle one chooses.
