Perhaps more easily aquired would be either 'Accordian Crimes' or 'Postcards' by Annie Proulx.Neither ends happily.
Connie , no doubt I need to read Stealing Speed . Is it more about Walter Kaaden , or Degner and Suzuki ? Dusty
I dare anyone. Try reading Moby Dick.
Dusty,Here is one with a motorcycle theme (at least beginning of movie), British power at its best and worst, and plenty of sand and dust.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_Pillars_of_WisdomThe desert crossing alone is worth the read. Superb.
Last Fall I was really smitten with The Fool's Progress: An Honest Novel, by Edward Abbey. Strangely enough, I found it by googling "A Fool's Progress," which had come to mind as a title for a motorcycle adventure in my youth.Any way, it's an end-of-life novel, and honest, and funny, and deeply moving, to me. If you have any history of adventures in the western U.S. of 50 years or so ago, you'd probably find it evocative of them, like I did.Moto
Okie man of desiccated clay, quartz and perhaps feldspar:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dune_(novel)The best SciFi novel of all time, in my opinion. Desert power!!Classic quote:"I must not fear.Fear is the mind-killer.Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.I will face my fear.I will permit it to pass over me and through me.And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

Not an easy or fun read but still a good read is Neal Peart's "Ghost Rider". I could empathize much with the author after the death of my first wife just short if 23 years. Neal Peart is an interesting and talented person. GliderJohn
Books, actually: The Border Trilogy by Cormack McCarthy - enjoyed them more than his more heralded and cinematized works.
