Tasmania to London on a Thumb and a Prayer
“How many rides does it take to hitch from Tasmania to London? Rogue wanderer Jamie Maslin decides to find out, propelling him into a high stakes adventure of a lifetime that sees him tackle searing desert, freezing mountains, tropical jungle and barren steppes on little more than a thumb and a prayer.
The Long Hitch Home is a dynamic mix of heart-thumping adventure and well-researched social, cultural and historical commentary on the score of countries Maslin encoutered during his arduous, and at times life threatening, journey home.
Whether writing about exotic backstreets of cities few of us will get to see, or unique wonders far off the beaten track, Jamie Maslin gives a thirlling and often hilarious account of what it is like to hit the road and live with intesnity and rapture.”
