If you’re looking for something off the beaten path or something for a select group of students uninterested in classic literature, then try presenting them with the challenge to unravel the lessons intertwined within “My Life Through Motorcycles.”
This is a collection of short stories that can best be described as coming of age and aging stories, as seen through my forty-five years of motorcycling aboard nearly fifty motorcycles. This book is two hundred and forty-seven pages of tales of adventure, miraculous survival, teenage angst, adult stupidity, growing up, and growing old.
These stories are great for ages sixteen and up, as there are three places in the book where profanity is used, as well as real-life and adult circumstances. Each story comes with the lesson that I learned from the adventure and antics; it’s an offbeat journey that you can use to explore theme, conflict, plot, hyperbole, and other elements of literature.
