Summary
"Steve Hely, writer for The Office and American Dad! and recipient of the Thurber Prize for American Humor, presents a travel book about his journey through Central and South America. Part travel book, part pop history, part comic memoir, Hely's writing will make any reader want to reach for their backpack and hiking boots. The Wonder Trail is the story of Steve's trip from Los Angeles to the bottom of South America, presented in 102 short chapters. The trip was ambitious--Steve traveled through Mexico City, ancient Mayan ruins, the jungles and coffee plantations and remote beaches of Central America, across the Panama Canal, by sea to Colombia, to the wild Easter celebration of Popayan, to the Amazon rainforest, the Inca sites of Cuzco and Machu Picchu, to the Galapagos Islands, the Atacama Desert of Chile, and down to the jagged and wind-worn land of Patagonia, at the very end of the western hemisphere. Steve's plan was to discover the weird, wonderful, and absurd--not to ignore the challenges and problems in Central and South America--but to focus on the incredible, delightful people and experiences that came his way. And the book that resulted is just as fun. A blend of travel writing, history, and comic memoir, The Wonder Trail will inspire, inform, and delight"--Provided by publisher
