Product Description

About the Author

Carlos Caggiani was born in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1940. In 1966, he emigrated to the United States where he studied and worked in engineering. He obtained several patents in the fields of medical, aviation and industrial turbines, retiring in 2002 as vice president of a multinational corporation. In 1998 he wrote "Deshojando Recuerdos", a book of poems in Spanish about his childhood. In 2000, he wrote "El Nuevo Martín Fierro", a compilation of poems about his adventurous two year motorcycle trip. His Spanish language "Huellas y Horizontes", written in 2009, is a more detailed history of his amazing journey around the world on his 1947 Indian Chief motorcycle. The English version, "Tracks and Horizons", is a faithful translation completed in 2010 by his son Ed, working in conjunction with Carlos to ensure not only the accuracy of the events, but the tone and emotion of his original Spanish telling.

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.

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.

Entertaining and Inspirational Reading... Sept. 24 2010
By Sandi Pino Manera - Published on
Format: Paperback
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!

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.

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.
