What makes a man sell all he owns and ride a motorcycle 22,000 miles from his hometown in upstate New York to the southernmost tip of South America? Some call it craziness; Latinos call it "cojones." This funny, fast-paced narrative follows a young man in his search for meaning, adventure, and the best rum in Latin America. Battling rough roads, careening buses, and bribe-taking cops in 14 countries, he discovers breathtaking beauty as well as what it feels like to hit a truck head-on. He and his companions for much of the trip--two bikers he met over the Internet--form an unlikely and amusing trio. In the tradition of "Road Fever" and "Motorcycle Diaries," Odyssey to Ushuaia is a riot for every reader, and absolutely essential for those planning a similar trip. Loaded with insider information such as how to bribe cops and not lose one's savings, how to cross a border without going crazy, how to handle an accident, and much more, it also features an appendix with the detailed trip lists from all three riders.

This book describes the fulfilment of my childhood dream of visiting the Straits of Magellan in Argentina. Much later, from 1998 to 1999, my wife Donna and I realized that goal by covering the entire Western Hemisphere from Alaska to Ushuaia, with a detour to Easter Island. From Chicago we drove through Central America to the southern tip of Argentina. We backtracked north to Belem, where our motor home went on a barge for a 1,000-mile trip on the Amazon River to Manaus. We then drove to Venezuela, and while the motor home was freighted to Houston, we flew back to Chicago. In late spring of 1999, we resumed our quest by taking a three-month drive through Alaska. The entire 40,000-mile trek was filled with many exciting moments, spectacular scenery, and wonderful people. It is a testimonial and an encouragement to all RV adventurers around the world.

"The Best Way Out" is a stirring tale of the misfortunes and triumphs of a young English/Argentine sailor from Devon in his quest to sail around Cape Horn. William Spyre defies the odds as he survives the '79 Fastnet Race debacle, then later arrest by the Argentine Junta as an English spy. Unable to psychologically break William, his sadistic Argentine Navy tormentor forces him into the Argentine Army as part of the invasion of the the Falkland Islands. William survives combat, is rescued by a British soldier, but, as a POW, he is returned to Argentina. He rejoins his extended family in Buenos Aires, and attempts to restart his voyage to Cape Horn. Wrecked on the coast of Patagonia, he is rescued by Argentine/Welch, and recovers. He has a torrid, illicit love affair with his Welsh host's daughter, forcing the couple to flee for their lives across Patagonia. In their flight they are relentlessly pursued by William's Argentine nemesis, Lt. Cmdr. Alfredo Astes. William and his love, Angharad take refuge in Santiago, Chile, but William remains a threat to Astes' power. He attempts to assassinate William, but fails, which temporarily neutralizes Astes' power, but he remains a threat. Angharad encourages William to complete his Cape Horn quest, so he takes a tenuous step, travels to Ushuaia, hires a veteran skipper and boat and finally conquers the Horn in winter. In Ushuaia, he inadvertently meets his antagonist Astes, but you must read the book to find out what happens.
