In April 1925, Tschiffely set out with two native Argentine horses, Mancha and Gato, and with rugged determination, the trio traversed the pampas, scaled the Bolivian Andes, struggled through Peruvian sands, swam the crocodile- infested rivers of Columbia, and fought their way through the jungles of Panama. They crossed Central America through countries devastated by years of war to reach Washington D.C., followed by a reception in New York. The three had been together, exclusively, for more than two years; during that time, Tschiffely developed a remarkable relationship with his horses - an affinity that has seldom been equalled. This colourful account is a true classic of travel literature and one of the greatest animal stories ever written.Hide synopsis
