Tracks and Horizons: 26 Countries on a Motorcycle

This book is nonfiction. It was originally written in Spanish by my father Carlos A. Caggiani and I have recently translated it into English and published it for Kindle.

http://www.amazon.com/Tracks-Horizon.../dp/B0041T4HC8

It's about his two-year trip around the world on an old Indian Chief motorcycle in the 1960's. 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.

The experiences in this book demonstrate a human being's tenacity and triumph in the face of adversity, and shows that anything is possible. There is always something more just beyond the horizon, and as the horizon expands, our limits disappear.

Thanks! The best part is that we worked on the translation together to ensure the accuracy of events as well as staying true to his voice. It was an amazing father/son project! Took nearly two years to complete!

And the print version is coming soon (using CreateSpace).

By the way, I also designed the cover. Hope people like it!
