            When Chris Skinner's mate Stew asked where he'd like to go for his 60th, no one expected Mt Everest by motorbike . If you're used to creature comforts, wary about what you eat, and never know when you'll need patching up in a good hospital, you might think extreme locations are n...ot for suburban folk like you. People can read Everest and Beyond to find out if that's right. After following this sometimes awkward, sometimes inspiring journey to Everest and Lhasa, readers may set off in pursuit of their own inappropriate objectives. This is the story of a bold plan-rashly formulated over quite a few drinks, and carried out by people more likely to be seen in VIP lounges than the slopes above Base Camp, or struggling for breath in the world's highest towns. On trusty Royal Enfields they rode the highest roads on the planet with white knuckles beneath black skies, through savage conditions, boggy roads and closed highways, armed checkpoints, dubious food and the occasional hot shower. They braved brutal altitudes for one of the rarest views on Earth-Mount Everest on a clear day. Along the way they met fantastic strangers who became fast friends-and saw the outlandish in a mystical land.

            'It's more than just a long motorcycle trip...' TONY WHEELER - co-founder Lonely Planet After riding her motorcycle across Africa, Heather Ellis is diagnosed with HIV in London after having the test for a Russian visa. She is thirty years old and is given five years to live. It i...s 1995, when death from AIDS is inevitable. Timeless On The Silk Road is the story of what happens next. What unfolds is a journey of courage, hardship and immense natural beauty as she rides along the fabled Silk Roads of antiquity to Australia. Believing this is her last adventure, her one last search for meaning, Heather's journey ultimately becomes one of destiny. Infused with a deep spiritual power, it is also a story that leaves the reader considering their own 'time less' journey called life. Heather travels into Central Asia after the fall of the Soviet Union where she crosses deserts and is touched by the ancient world of Islam. She rides into the land of the heavenly mountains and discovers the ancient traditions of the nomads. She ventures into the vastness of Siberia's Altai mountains where she is welcomed into the homes of Kazakhs and Russians alike. And in China, she is repeatedly told there will soon be a new world order. Timeless On The Silk Road is Heather's eagerly anticipated second book and follows Ubuntu: One Woman's Motorcycle Odyssey Across Africa (Nero, Black Inc. 2016).
