Description

"One of the most engaging aspects of Wood's narrative is his ability to bring his passion for adventure, for history, for learning about indigenous cultures...and the natural world...His is travel and adventure writing at its best."--Shelf Awareness

"Levison Wood is a great adventurer and a wonderful storyteller."―Sir Ranulph Fiennes

"Many have attempted this holy grail of an expedition―so I admire Lev's determination and courage to pull this off."―Bear Grylls

"Levison Wood has breathed new life into adventure travel."―Michael Palin

"[Wood's] narrative skills are enlivened by a droll wit and entertaining descriptions of his traveling companions and the characters encountered during his journey... The greatest value to the American reader of this book, however, may be the unbiased observations by this perceptive Brit of the impact which the present United States' immigration policy has upon the vast region stretching from South America to our Southern border... Wood's interactions with both notorious MS-13 gang members and innocent families trying to enter our country illustrate the chaos caused by our present system. While he hearkens back to the classic British explorers of our planet, Wood's travels are as current as today's headlines."--Lincoln Journal-Star

"So often books on great treks seem to relish recounting only maladies, sexcapades, or drunken capers. Not so with Wood; he focuses on the people and places he and Alberto encounter, which makes for great reading."--Library Journal (starred review)

"A thrilling narrative trek through towns, back roads, and natural wonders of Central America, all on foot. He elevates this already fascinating landscape with lively prose that combines travel journal with history lessons, memoir, and survivalist handbook. This skillful weaving of genres creates intensity and suspense chapter to chapter, keeping the reader's interest piqued and the pages turning as Wood pays deep respect to a dangerous and extraordinarily beautiful part of the planet."--Booklist
