Book: Tracks and Horizons: 26 Countries on a Motorcycle
From 1964 to 1966, Carlos Caggiani (my father) traveled to 26 countries on a 1947 Indian Chief motorcycle with hardly a penny to his name. At 24 years of age, he embarked on the adventure of a lifetime. He spent time with everyone from poor natives in the Andes mountains, to rich families in the United States. He crossed rivers without bridges, suffered famine, intense heat and cold, guided his motorcycle through rain and snow storms, rode on dirt and cobblestone roads, was chased by the FBI, was shot at in Bolivia during a revolutionary war, and had a serious accident due to a mechanical failure in Panama that left him hospitalized for 17 days. Tracks and Horizons, originally written by Carlos in Spanish and recently translated to English by me (with his input), chronicles this amazing adventure.
