About this title


This remarkable book recounts the extraordinary journey made by the most influential Long Rider of the 20th century. In 1925 AimE Tschiffely set off to ride from Buenos Aires, Argentina, to New York City. The legendary 10,000 mile journey took him through mountains, jungles and swamps where he encountered rope bridges, vampire bats, sand storms, quicksand and hostile natives. After two harrowing years he was accorded a ticker-tape parade when he rode triumphantly through the streets of New York. This amazing story is narrated by the two equine heroes, Mancha and Gato, who accompanied the author. Though nearly a century has passed since the trio set off on their journey, their story has become a celebrated classic. Amply illustrated with drawings by the author, this is a book for all lovers of horses, for all lovers of travel and for all lovers of adventure.
