35 concerts. 17,000 motorcycle miles. Three months. One lifetime.

In May 2015, the veteran Canadian rock trio Rush embarked on their 40th anniversary tour, R40. For the band and their fans, R40 was a celebration and, perhaps, a farewell. But for Neil Peart, each tour is more than just a string of concerts, it’s an opportunity to explore backroads near and far on his BMW motorcycle. So if this was to be the last tour and the last great adventure, he decided it would have to be the best one, onstage and off.

This third volume in Peart’s illustrated travel series shares all-new tales that transport the reader across North America and through memories of 50 years of playing drums. From the scenic grandeur of the American West to a peaceful lake in Quebec’s Laurentian Mountains to the mean streets of Midtown Los Angeles, each story is shared in an intimate narrative voice that has won the hearts of many readers.

Richly illustrated, thoughtful, and ever-engaging, Far and Wide is an elegant scrapbook of people and places, music and laughter, from a fascinating road — and a remarkable life.

Neil Peart is the drummer and lyricist of the legendary rock band Rush and the author of Ghost Rider, The Masked Rider, Traveling Music, Roadshow, Far and Away, Far and Near, and, with Kevin J. Anderson, Clockwork Angels and Clockwork Lives.

  • One of ECW’s all-time bestselling titles is Ghost Rider (over 165K sold), while Clockwork Angels (35K sold) appeared
    on the New York Times bestseller list. Far and Away, Neil’s first full-colour book in this format, sold over 20K copies.
  • On Far and Near, Kirkus Reviews wrote: “Experience the sheer joy Peart takes in life and his passion for sharing it with others. Far less scandalous than ‘rock drummer writes book’ might suggest but far more interesting, too.”
  • Includes Peart’s never-before-seen personal family and tour photos, and 90% of the text is being shared for the first time.

“The art he draws with his young daughter is heartwarming; his refusal to bend for a Rolling Stone photographer is hilarious . . . Rush fans feeling nostalgic about the end of the band’s touring days will likely enjoy the ride.” — Publisher’s Weekly

“No surprise about Neil being a gifted writer after all the amazing Rush lyrics that he’s written, but the pictures really put his books on the ‘must have’ list.” — WNCX Cleveland
