Huellas y Horizontes: 26 Países en una Motocicleta (Spanish Edition)

Desde 1964 a 1966, el autor recorrió 26 países en una motocicleta "Indian Chief" de 1947. La aventura se realizó casi sin dinero y le dejó toda clase de experiencias. Convivió con indígenas en Los Andes y con familias adineradas en los Estados Unidos. Cruzó ríos sin puentes, sufrió temperaturas extremas, guió su motocicleta en tormentas de lluvia y de nieve, recorrió caminos de tierra, de arena y de piedra, fue perseguido por el FBI en Newark, New Jersey, sobrevivió a una balacera en la rebelión contra el presidente Víctor Paz Estensoro en Bolivia y a un accidente por desperfecto mecánico en Panamá. Las huellas que dejó el autor, están plasmadas en esta edición y dejan un ejemplo de pujanza, tesón y paciencia demostrando que nada es imposible para un ser humano y que siempre hay algo más detrás del horizonte. Que ese horizonte se expande hasta donde se pueda expandir nuestra mente y que los límites no existen.

A fine adventure travel memoir written by a 26-year-old Uruguayan who rides a 1947 Indian motorcycle around the world in the mid 1960s. I*t has the romantic sense of Che Guevarra's journey but with very different outcomes.

I wish that the author had spent more time near the end talking more about... ...more

This book was originally written by my father, Carlos A. Caggiani, in Spanish and I recently translated it into English. So I'm obviously biased when I say this is an amazing true life story of a man and his old motorcycle travelling around the world in the 1960's. ...more

Having just traveled to most of these places, I really enjoyed the narrative. I had to keep reminding myself that this journey took place almost 45 years earlier. Even still the observations hold true. I'll be rereading this one soon. ...more

I read a good number of memoirs. I enjoy reading about other's lives and what they have learned or the adventure they go on. I always walk away with something. I kept waiting to see what I would walk away with from this book. While, there was a definite sense of adventure, I felt it lacked someth... ...more
