9781489586919: The Yukon Queen: A Record-breaking Journey and the Story of an Amazing Car

In July 1999 the good ship Marie Anne sailed from Rotterdam, bound for the USA. On board this creaking cargo ship were Rob Godfrey and two Citroen 2CVs. This voyage was the first leg of an epic journey to Prudhoe Bay, on the shores of the Arctic Ocean, a journey that took Rob Godfrey and Jose Oostveen 8000 road miles across North America. The 2CV Alaska Challenge was not only the first time a 2CV had been driven up to the Arctic Ocean in Alaska, it was also the first time that charity fundraising had been attempted entirely via the internet, and also the first time that an ongoing travelogue had been posted as 'almost live' reportage - the only things that weren't cutting edge about the 2CV Alaska Challenge were the cars. Delay, deviation and danger while crossing the Atlantic Ocean, breakdowns, bust-ups and bacchanalia during the road journey to Alaska, and lots and lots of pissed-off grizzly bears were all part of what beforehand had seemed like a good idea. The book also relates what happened to Rob after the 2CV Alaska Challenge, which was a case of being 'down and out in the Wild West with a Citroen 2CV'. The Yukon Queen runs to approx. 105,000 words and is not only the story of an amazing car, it's also a quirky history of Canada and the Pacific Northwest, including the Yukon gold rush, the Alaskan gold rush, and the building of the Alaska Highway and the Trans-Alaska Pipeline.
