Tom dreamed of being an adventurer. But everyone told him he was crazy, so he decided to prove them wrong by cycling round the world! The first book of Tom s adventures followed him across Europe and through the mysterious landscapes of Africa. In Part Two, Tom pedals north from the tip of South America up through the Americas towards Alaska. He must contend with deserts, jungles and the massive mountains of the Andes. He meets grizzly bears , fascinating locals, and even a memorable guinea pig. Tom learns about the world, and himself, as he tackles this epic journey. Based on the authors personal experiences and with engaging illustrations, maps and handwritten journal entries throughout, this book provides an immersive experience for any young adventurer. Alastair Humphreys spent four years cycling 46,000 miles round the world. In 2012, he was named as a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year.
