LoveReading View on Road Fever

A truly wacky road trip from the southern-most point of the Western Hemisphere, Tierra del Fuego, Chile, to the far north, the oil fields of Alaska, what one might call extreme travel writing written with the same energy and pull as the trip itself.  Quite something.

Sarah Broadhurst

Road Fever Synopsis

Driving 15,000 miles from Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, in a record-breaking twenty-three and a half days, Tim Cahill's Road Fever is a hilarious account of a preposterous journey, a breathtaking tour of North and South America, as well as a veritable how-to for pulling off cheeky scams to get ahead. All in the spirit of getting his name written into the record books.
 

Told with the humour, knowledge, and propriety-be-damned attitude that have made his other adventure books such critical and popular successes, Cahill embarks on his fastest, funniest trip yet. He reveals everything there is to know about surviving South America on a diet of beef jerky and Farmer's milk shakes and getting General Motors and the Guinness Book of World Records to subsidize his wanderlust.
