The Raven Brothers were born in the United Kingdom. 'Hike, Drive, Stayin’ Alive!' is their fifth book. The first published work by the authors, 'Living the Linger’, tells the story of a journey of lost love and a search for the truth during a road trip through backcountry USA. A year later, the brothers became established travel writers following a life-altering drive from the UK to Vladivostok in a rusty Ford Sierra. Noted by Lonely Planet for their talent to portray an “accurate view of what to expect”, the book 'Driving the Trans-Siberian' spurred a life on the road. 'Carnival Express' was the concluding title in the ‘Linger Series’ trilogy, and follows two struggling writers on a South America adventure. A period of photojournalism, documenting new and off the beaten track destinations, tribal India, China’s deep south and Crimea, led to the release of Black Sea Circuit. Seizing a narrow window of opportunity to cross the notorious Caucasus frontier, the book explores great legends from Jason and the Argonauts to a tribe of fierce female warriors known as the Amazons. Hike, Drive, Stayin’ Alive! the duo’s fifth book, is the first in a collection of ten candid stories of adventure by The Raven Brothers. >
