Five Leaves latest ebook - After the Gold Rush: a bycicle journey through American history
John Stuart Clark's After the Gold Rush has been unavailable for a while, so, hip to the times, we have re-issued it as an ebook, but only as an ebook, with new maps added since the print edition. John - otherwise known as the illustrator Brick - decided to cycle across America, following the path of the gold rush. He met some unusual and interesting people, visited half deserted townships, cycled through areas nobody ever goes by bike and, in short, had the sort of crazed adventures you'd expect to find in an endurance based travel book. His book gave an insight into America that was so insightful he lost his original American publishers! He also took the photo on the cover, and, indeed, designed it. http://tinyurl.com/cde9o2s
