Product Description

Product Description

If you ever plan to travel between North America and South America, you must consider that there is no road.

Ten hours southeast of the Panama Canal, the Pan-American Highway penetrates the jungle, shrivels into a footpath and dies. The highway resurrects in Colombia, another continent. But the land between the two countries is a vast and primitive realm. On a map the two ends of the highway appear as two slivers of life, separated by the unknown.

Filling this void is a rugged wilderness known as the Darien Rainforest. Because the Darien hinders all contact by land between North America and South America, it has earned the name "the Darien Gap."

Yet most travelers never encounter the Darien Gap. When they go to South America they fly or perhaps take a boat. I decided to cross the Darien overland, traversing from Panama to Colombia by foot and riverboat.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's exactly what i was looking for. 13 Aug 2013

Found this while searching amazon for central america. This guy is no Hemingway but gets the point across as to what you will encounter should you decide to visit that part of the world. I just might. He seems to have taken his notes and published those. The could use a good editor. But nearly all books can, nowadays. Bit perplexed by the review from someone who hasn't even finished the book. Maybe next time read the synopsis so you know what you're getting. That's what i did and found exactly what i was looking for. Would suggest the same for anyone even slightly interested in exploring the darien gap. Great book? No. Good book? Definitely.
