Join Christopher Currie in-conversation with Steve Hely discussing 'The Wonder Trail: True Stories from Los Angeles to the End of the World' (Black Inc.).

Who should read this book?

People taking trips, people who aren’t taking trips, people who like trips, people who don’t like trips, and people who want to be entertained, delighted, and informed should all enjoy this book.

People interested in: animals, the Amazon, beaches, coffee, canals, drugs, explorers, festivals, islands, jungles, plants, ruins, volcanoes, the tropics, the desert, the mountains, the sea, and other wonders of Central and South America.

Steve Hely takes a trip south – all the way south. On a journey that takes in Mexico City, ancient Mayan ruins, the Panama Canal, Colombia, the Amazon rainforest, the Galápagos Islands, the Atacama Desert of Chile, and the jagged and wind-worn land of Patagonia, Hely encounters the colourful, the wild and the downright absurd. Part travel book, part pop history and part comic memoir, 'The Wonder Trail' is a gallivant Steve-Hely style – razor-sharp, hilarious and fascinating.
