One More Day Everywhere

The motorcycle adventurer and author of Two Wheels Through Terror delivers a “spectacular and gripping read” of his solo journey around the world (Friction Zone). In November of 2001, on a motorcycle trip to the tip of South America, Glen Heggstad was kidnapped at gunpoint by Colombian rebels and held captive for five weeks. Yet even after his traumatic incarceration, Glen did what few others would—finished his trip. Three years later, frustrated by the climate of fear in a media-saturated world and the resulting stranglehold of self-imposed security in the United States, Glen decided to look for truth on his own terms—on the back of his motorcycle. Starting in Japan, Glen wound his way through Siberia, Mongolia, Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and Africa, stopping in over thirty countries. This was not a tourist’s bus tour—Glen battled extreme temperatures, knee-deep mud, bureaucratic roadblocks, health problems, and loneliness, but these problems faded to insignificance with the thrill of the open road and the smiling receptions he received from locals and fellow bikers at every turn. With One More Day Everywhere, readers can share Glen Heggstad’s vision of a world ungoverned by fear and, like Glen, embrace each experience, with one eye always on the horizon. “If anyone knows determination, perseverance, agony and terror it is Glen Heggstad. And that motorcycles are fun!” —Jimmy Lewis, editor, Cycle World Magazine “This is a story of extreme travel at its finest.” —RoadRunner “Heggstad manages to illustrate the joys and hardships and benefits and drawbacks of two-wheeled global travel to some of the most difficult places on the planet.” —Friction Zone

Commodifying Violence in Literature and on Screen

This book traverses the cultural landscape of Colombia through in-depth analyses of displacement, local and global cultures, human rights abuses, and literary and media production. Through an exploration of the cultural processes that perpetuate the "darker side" of Latin America for global consumption, it investigates the "condition" that has led writers, filmmakers, and artists to embrace (purposefully or not) the incessant violence in Colombian society as the object of their own creative endeavors. In this examination of mass-marketed cultural products such as narco-stories, captivity memoirs, gritty travel narratives, and films, Herrero-Olaizola seeks to offer a hemispheric approach to the role played by Colombia in cultural production across the continent where the illicit drug trade has made significant inroads. To this end, he identifies the "Colombian condition" within the parameters of the global economy while concentrating on the commodification of Latin America’s violence for cultural consumption.

The Pathfinder Diaries

Car chase in Colombia. Police extortions in Mexico. Tenacious border caddies in Central America. Terrorism in Guatemala. Century swell in the Caribbean. Twenty-six border crossings on expired Californian tags. These were just some of the events Cory Belyea, a gringo, and his trusty Pathfinder encountered on a quest that carved 22,000 miles out of the Americas on the way down to Tierra Del Fuego, Argentina. For what? The waves, the romance, the adventure? The road trip became a testament of how far a surfer would go to honor a fallen friend chasing down the dream. Would it be enough? In The Pathfinder Diaries, Belyea shares a wild, life-altering journey. Writing with candor and from the heart, his words uncover the beauty and injustices of the American continent. In his short stories, his love for the ocean, languages, and the people of Latin American shines bright. Praise for The Pathfinder Diaries “Hard to put a masterpiece into such little words. An incredible story about adventure, human connection, and friendship.” —Profesora Serocki “An epic journey of discovery and homage. Cory Belyea captures the unique love affair that all seafarers, surfers, and free-divers have with the ocean. Belyea searches for the perfect wave to honor his friend Mike, taking the reader on adventures spanning thousands of miles of land and sea throughout Latin America.” —Captain Chris

Two Wheels and a Map

Long before smart phones and GPS devices simplified bike touring, cyclists were crossing the roads of this country, equipped with little more than two wheels and a map. This is the tale of one such rider who tackled the East Coast in the early '90s. Leaving behind an unfulfilling job, he loaded up his bike and set off, meandering along rural back roads, meeting strangers, listening to their stories and enjoying their unexpected hospitality. Not everything went as planned, though. Unforeseen circumstances forced him in directions he hadn't anticipated; searing summer heat drained his energy; and he spent many a nervous night bedding down where he didn't belong. His trip touched the tip of failure-yet succeeded in ways he hadn't imagined. Through it all, the people who crossed his path, sometimes offering only a kind word, gave him the inspiration he needed to persevere. Two Wheels and a Map details Bob Neubauer's two-part solo bike journey from Bangor, Maine, to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. His often-amusing observations on the people and predicaments he encountered along the way give the book a lighthearted tone as it chronicles his life on the open road. Bob Neubauer is also the author of Alone in Austria: A Solo Bike Trip Across Austria. It chronicles his two-wheeled journey from Salzburg to Vienna, Austria, visiting quaint villages, castle ruins and ancient monasteries.
