<DIV><DIV>Spanning four seasons, 10 countries, three teaching jobs, and countless buses, <I>Patagonian Road</I> chronicles Kate McCahill's solo journey from Guatemala to Argentina. In her struggles with language, romance, culture, service, and homesickness, she personifies a growing culture of women for whom travel is not a path to love but to meaningful work, rare inspiration, and profound self-discovery. Following Paul Theroux's route from his 1979 travelogue, McCahill transports the reader from a classroom in a Quito barrio to a dingy room in an El Salvadorian brothel, and from the neighborhoods of Buenos Aires to the heights of the Peruvian Andes. A testament to courage, solitude, and the rewards of taking risks, <I>Patagonian Road </I>proves that discovery, clarity, and simplicity remain possible in the 21st century, and that travel holds an enduring capacity to transform.</DIV></DIV>

<DIV>Four travelers meet in Bolivia and set off into the heart of the Amazon rainforest, but what begins as a dream adventure quickly deteriorates into a dangerous nightmare, and after weeks of wandering in the dense undergrowth, the four backpackers split up into two groups. But when a terrible rafting accident separates him from his partner, Yossi is forced to survive for weeks alone against one of the wildest backdrops on the planet. Stranded without a knife, map, or survival training, he must improvise shelter and forage for wild fruit to survive. As his feet begin to rot during raging storms, as he loses all sense of direction, and as he begins to lose all hope, he wonders whether he will make it out of the jungle alive.<BR><BR>The basis of an upcoming motion picture starring Daniel Radcliffe, <EM>Jungle</EM> is the story of friendship and the teachings of nature, and a terrifying true account that you won’t be able to put down.<BR></DIV>

<b>THE <i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER!<br /><br />What happens when an unadventurous adventure writer tries to re-create the original expedition to Machu Picchu?<br /><br /></b>In 1911, Hiram Bingham III climbed into the Andes Mountains of Peru and “discovered” Machu Picchu. While history has recast Bingham as a villain who stole both priceless artifacts and credit for finding the great archeological site, Mark Adams set out to retrace the explorer’s perilous path in search of the truth—except he’d written about adventure far more than he’d actually lived it. In fact, he’d never even slept in a tent.<br /><br /><i>Turn Right at Machu Picchu</i> is Adams’ fascinating and funny account of his journey through some of the world’s most majestic, historic, and remote landscapes guided only by a hard-as-nails Australian survivalist and one nagging question: Just what <i>was</i> Machu Picchu?

"For everyone thinking of a new adventure, a new life, or even a new venture: DO IT." - Jim Rogers, bestselling author of Investment Biker.<br /><br />After building a successful business, Dirk Weisiger was ready for something new. But he wasn’t sure what. Maybe a motorcycle adventure, I’ve never done that! <br /><br />What followed was a fourteen-month, solo motorcycle journey from Austin, Texas to Ushuaia, Argentina, filled with unexpected adventures, surprises, and lessons about life and travel.<br /><br />“I headed south to see new vistas on a solo journey, but ended up feeling more connected to the people I met along the way.”<br /><br />In this book, you’ll not only enjoy Dirk’s adventure and insights, but find inspiration for your own journey. <br /><br /><br />Dirk Weisiger is a travel trekker, trick roper, and storyteller. Dirk has always enjoyed speaking to groups, spinning tales, ropes, and offering lessons he’s learned in adventures of life and business. He’s travelled to five continents and climbed Mount Kilimanjaro. Most of all Dirk loves people and believes that making new friends is the best part of travel. <br /><br />(A portion of proceeds from this book help sponsor children at the Colegio Bautista El Calvario private school in Managua, Nicaragua.)<br /><br />www.DirkSpeaks.com <br /><br />"This isn’t the first book I’ve read on riding to Ushuaia, but it is probably the most enjoyable." <br />- Muriel Farrington, Ambassador, BMW Motorcycles Of America
