Wrong Way Home by Peter Moore
Book DescriptionSporting a fabulous new jacket in line with the new look mirrored in his backlist titles, THE WRONG WAY HOME is the classic must-read from the author of the bestselling NO SHITTING IN THE TOILET and THE FULL MONTEZUMA. THE WRONG WAY HOME is a hip, hilarious and highly entertaining travelogue that takes the author on the old hippie trail from the UK to Australia without flying.

But most of all they had the best trips. With woefully inadequate funds and only a slim chance of making it through notorious hot spots en route, Peter followed the trail overland to the East. The crazy, beautiful and sometimes shocking places he visits and the wonderful cast of eccentric characters he meets along on the way make for a delightfully funny and informative armchair read that you won't want to put down.

Author Biography - Peter Moore
Peter Moore is an itinerant hobo who is lucky enough to be able to support his insatiable travel habit (he has visited 92 countries on his travels) through writing. He is the author of four acclaimed travel books - The Wrong Way Home, The Full Montezuma, Swahili for the Broken-Hearted (shortlisted for the WHSMith People's Choice Travel Book Award) and Vroom with a View as well as the classic alternative travel guide, No Shitting in the Toilet. When he's not on the road living out of his senselessly overweight backpack, he alternates between London and Sydney with his collection of souvenir plastic snowdomes and Kinder Surprise toys.
