At 16,500 miles, it was the world's longest road: a road on which travellers faced being baked in deserts, frozen in mountains, kidnapped and murdered by Colombian drug barons, buried under Peruvian avalanches, drowned by the Guatemalan rainy season, fleeced by eight-year-old Ecuadorean border touts, wasted by Montezuma's revenge, driven mad by blackflies in the Yukon, eaten by Alaskan grizzlies and, worst of all, limited to a glass of Chardonnay a day in California. The Pan-American Highway - it sounded brilliant. The next day, I went out to buy every book that I could find on it. And found that there weren't any. Then it's about time I wrote one, I thought. Hilariously funny, thoughtful and entertaining, this is that book. From the difficulties of getting bikes to Chile and the trials of South American border crossings, to the joys of the open road and the dubious delights of the local specialities (guinea pig, anyone?), you will love every twist and turn in the (very very long) road on this adventure.
