"Ted Simon madea journey millions dream of ... He rode around the world for four years, traveling 78,000 miles through 45 countries, over mountains, through jungles, across deserts and oceans, living with peasants and presidents, in prisons and palaces, through wars and revolutions; experiencing the depths of fear, the heights of euphoria, and the rewards of love. He was seen as a spy, a romantic stranger, a maker of myths, even a deity. And for Ted Simon, Magellan on a motorbike, it became a journey to the center of his soul."--Back cover.
