|Plot Summary of Ghost Rider|
|"In the late 1990s, Neil Peart, the drummer of the music group Rush, suffered twin tragedies. His teenaged daughter lost her life in an automobile accident, and within the year he lost his wife to cancer. These deaths sent Peart into an emotional turmoil that threatened his sanity and the future of his relationship with Rush.
Unable to sit around his house and absorb these memories, Peart hopped on his motorcycle an embarked on a number of trips across Canada, the US, and Central America as a means of mentally healing himself. Through narratives about his trips, flashbacks to happier times, and letters written to an incarcerated friend, the reader is given the whole picture of Peart's journey toward healing his emotions."
