"Mud, Sweat, and Gears is not only an incredible human-powered journey, but it's also about the intricate, poignant, and often hilarious family dynamics that result. The Metal Cowboy's most compelling book yet."—Heidi Swift, The Oregonian

This time the Metal Cowboy sets off to bicycle across Canada, with wife and three sons (one just a year old) along for the adventure. If Momentum Is Your Friend was about fathers, sons, and hometown heroes, Mud, Sweat, and Gears is about mothers, wives, family, and the glue that holds the world together.

From the Back Cover:

"Mud, Sweat, and Gears is a romance and a thriller; an adventure tale, and a seriously funny book. Kurmaskie's chronicle of his young family's journey across Canada on bicycle is a story for all time and now, for bicyclists and for those who have never ridden beyond the end of the block. You will laugh. You will swoon. You will shake your head in wonder. Could Kurmaskie and his wife have really thought it a good idea to bicycle four-thousand plus miles with a baby and two children under the age of ten in tow? They did. And Kurmaskie has told the hilarious and moving tale of their trip like a master. You won't be able to put this beautiful book down."
--Cheryl Strayed, author of Torch and Wild

"Nobody roams--or writes--with more manic energy or enthusiasm for `the hard life' than Joe Kurmaskie. Topping that enviable accomplishment, Mud, Sweat, and Gears establishes the Kurmaskie clan as the first family of American adventure."

--Jay Atkinson, author of Paradise Road: Jack Kerouac's Lost Highway and My Search for America and City in Amber

"Joe Kurmaskie rolls with a keen sense of comedy and a big heart." --Christopher Moore, author of Lamb and A Dirty Job

"A rollicking tale that adds credence to the credo, `The family that pedals together, stays together.' (Having the kids on a combination tandem/trail-a-bike/trailer helps) The momentum of this wonderful family epic will launch you from page one into Canada's hinterlands. (From there, cheap flights home are available.)

--Bart King, author of The Big Book of Boy Stuff
