Book Description

Sept. 16 2010
From 1964 to 1966, Carlos Caggiani travelled to 26 countries on a 1947 Indian Chief motorcycle with hardly a penny to his name. 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Open your heart and enjoy the trip! Dec 25 2010
By David C. Reid - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a shoe-string traveler in my youth and an aspiring writer in middle age, I met a kindred spirit in the young Carlos Caggiani. This book struck a powerful chord within me as I enjoyed the rare privilege of viewing the world of 1966 through such an insightful perspective. I was particularly struck by his perspective of the United States in the not-so-distant past and the changes that have occurred and are still going on. I don't read Spanish but can only assume that the translation in to English was well done as the book certainly captivated me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible and Inspirational Read Sept. 22 2010
By Eric M - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I had the pleasure to read this truly amazing story in its native language, Spanish. The intricate details of this man's journey are nothing short of awe-inspiring. Each chapter is more engaging than the last, and your respect for the courage it took Carlos to make this journey during a time of revolution and civil unreset grows with each word. Being able to pen a memoir as remarkable as this is open to so few people, we're truly blessed to have Carlos share his story. 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and Inspirational Reading... Sept. 24 2010
By Sandi Pino Manera - Published on
I so enjoyed reading "Tracks and Horizons!" I loved Caggiani's descriptive and poignant narrative of his exciting journey. I found myself cheering him on through his triumphs and defeats. The book was interesting, compelling, humorous and entertaining. Even though the trip happened a long time ago, we can benefit today from the author's experiences of humanity, enterprise, endurance, perseverence, determination and spirit. Thank you for sharing your journey with all of us!

2.0 out of 5 stars Tracks and Horizons, somewhat off track .... Nov. 28 2011
By Herman the German - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well, as motorcycle tourer myself, I was hoping for either a description of the countries, people, roads and adventures, or a "human interest story" about the trials and tribulations of such long journey. This book is neither. A bit of this and a bit of that. A long prologue by the author's son and translator of the book does not ad value. Not bad, but not good either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Restless Spirits Apply Sept. 13 2010
By Rory Miller - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
The restless spirit in all of us comes alive when encountering a story like this. It's like a passport to a different age, an age when the world wasn't as Mcdonalized as today, wasn't as tame, and wasn't as boring. What a read.
