Rebuilding the Indian: A Memoir
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungConstructing a vintage Indian motorcycle from a box of parts is more than the restoration of a bike for Haefele--it's the resurrection of a dream. "Rebuilding the Indian" chronicles one man's journey through the fearful expanse of midlife in a quest for peace, parts, and a happy second fatherhood.
PortraitFred Haefele has taught creative writing at Stanford University and the University of Montana. He currently works as an arborist in Montana, where he lives with his wife and two children.
Pressestimmen"This remembrance of turning a box of junk into a gleaming 1941 Indian Chief has a universal roar. Just the right mix of gearhead details and personal reflections." USA Today "What Haefele writes about wonderfully, in his mellow, understated way, is how the Indian project became a test of his love and resolve." Esquire "Haefele describes how his search for vintage parts eventually involved an entire community of fanatical mechanics, impoverished motorcycle collectors, and renegade bikers--a collaboration, he realizes, that gave him skills as much social and spiritual as practical." New Yorker
