Chasing Rickshaws-Interview with Tony Wheeler


Listen with RealAudio: Chasing Rickshaws

This year marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Lonely Planet travel guides. To commemorate the occasion, Tony Wheeler, the publication's founder, has written a book called Chasing Rickshaws, a romantic look at twelve Asian countries as seen from the perspective of the rickshaw---sort of the Asian taxi cab. Lonely Planet photographer Richard I'Anson accompanied Tony on his journey and what they created is a spectacular profile of the Far East and a mode of transportation that seems almost anachronistic in this fast paced world.

Tony Wheeler's book Lonely Planet: Chasing Rickshaws is available from Amazon.com.
