You can also find photographs of my rides along the U.S. borders with Mexico and Canada as part of my research for Borderlands, including some images of my iconic Kawasaki KLR 650. There are also photos of my sailboat, Gertrud, a Bristol Channel Cutter, whose voyages will become part of my next book about the sea.

The notebook page will contain some thoughts and reflections about writing—inspiration and routines—and a FAQ page (both under construction, and ready soon).

My latest book, Borderlands: Riding the Edge of America was shortlisted for the Hubert Evans Non-Fiction Prize.

Borderlands was published in May 2010 by Knopf Canada. It’s the story of one man, one motorcycle, and two borders: a 15,000-kilometre trek to observe and explain the American obsession with security.

The paperback edition was published in Canada and the United States in October 2011.
