really liked it

I have wanted to read this for quite some time, but have been a little weary. The thing is, I love Tim Cahill, but all of his writing is short-form journalism style. I was worried that a longer narrative would lose its luster for me and Cahill would drop in my standings. Not at all. The book was delightful. Mostly because of the detail he describes of what it takes to be an adventure writer. As for the adventure itself, the book is truly exciting, with vivid detail of the gorgeous landscapes he traversed and interesting people he met. The book focuses almost exclusively on getting through South and Central America, but that is where all the fun happens. US and Canada took them just a few days, and he devoted about 20 pages to it. A really fun book, and a must-read for anyone harboring plans to take on this type of profession/adventure.
