‘Thinking outside the guidebooks, that’s where I like to take my trips.’ Graham Field

Short listed for ‘Overland Magazine Book of 2012’
So you find yourself on a TV quiz show and you are asked, “What will you do if you win the money?” Naturally your answer is going to be, “Ride a motorcycle to Mongolia.” This quirky start to, ‘In Search of Greener Grass’ will give you an instant insight of what to expect, as you enter the life of Graham Field.
The book takes the reader with him from rock festivals to disasters that hurt, to pretty girls, to tales of the unexpected and to being lost as he crosses the dusty plains of Kazakhstan and Mongolia. It’s kind-hearted, funny, genuine and delightfully honest, and woven into the tale is some very good travel advice and a built-in feelgood factor.
‘In Search of Greener Grass’ is a great window into the people, cultures and views both inside and outside the helmet, en route to Ulan Bator and beyond. It’s a wonderfully eclectic mix of life on the road and everything.
