Growing weary of his corporate cubicle in the American Southwest, Bill Dwyer chucks it all and rides his motorcycle towards Ushuaia, Argentina, the southernmost city in the world. In his 20,000 mile solo journey he encounters corruption in Mexico, finds himself stranded in the highlands of Bolivia and gets arrested in Nicaragua. The road presents Bill with fears to face, immense kindness of strangers, and huge challenges to overcome, all while he copes with his anxiety disorder. Join Bill as he shares a candid account of his experiences bumbling across the Americas.
In this thought-provoking and well-written account, Bill takes the reader on a life-affirming journey through one of the world’s most vivid and exotic continents. Many dream about it, few make it happen. Luckily for us, Bill is one of those few.
So many adventure-travel books are either endless tales of derring-do, or equally endless chronicles of disaster. Bill’s book neatly balances the daring and disaster, the highs and lows he encountered on his journey, and because of that it strikes home as an honest and deeply personal account of an everyman’s adventure. It’s the kind of book that will leave you staring at the ceiling and thinking, I could do that. And that is the very best kind of adventure-travel book.
I’m incredibly happy to complete this project, it gives me closure on a chapter of my life lasting five years. I spent two years preparing for my Latin American adventure, about a year traveling (and recovering), and then two years writing this book about it. I look forward to exploring the Pacific Northwest during this spring and summer.
Thanks for all the kind words from readers following my adventures. I hope you enjoy reading my book as much as I enjoyed writing it.
