An eye opening story about possibly the most corrupt country in the world. Now has a cult following among the pack backer world.
Marching Powder is the story of a convicted drug tafficker, Thomas McFadden, inside the notorious Bolivian Prison, San Pedro. The story is told by one of the may backpackers who visited with Thomas whilst he ran illegal tours and partied hard on the cocaine made inside the prison.
one of the best aspects of this story is that the main character is not an innocent victim but a many times guilty drug tafficer and dealer who is caught in a corrupt sting. Whist he his fallible he is immensley likable character. Readable and enjoyable.
