Driving 15,000 miles from Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, in a record-breaking twenty-three and a half days, Tim Cahill's Road Fever is a hilarious account of a preposterous journey, a breathtaking tour of North and South America, as well as a veritable how-to for pulling off cheeky scams to get ahead. All in the spirit of getting his name written into the record books.



"A hilarious, hyperbolic account of a record-setting 23-day-22-hour drive from the southernmost tip of South America to Alaska's Prudhoe Bay....Mr. Cahill writes as if he were a long-lost buddy we have found in the bar of a dimly lit truck stop, regaling us with roto-routed tales of driving through splattered sheep intestines and 'greasy gumbo mud' along narrow, potholed mountain roads where little shrines to the Virgin Mary mark the spots where public buses have taken the plunge." (The New York Times)

Not really a travelogue, but a good story anyway

What sounded like the rather zany story of a mad dash across the Americas was in the end more concerned with the drivers and the driving itself than with the people and the countries the protagonists encountered. However, Cahill's story is still intriguing and funny at times and all in all quite enjoable, even though it did not turn to be quite what I expected.
