Synopsis

Steve Hely, writer for 30 Rock, The Office and American Dad!, and recipient of the Thurber Prize for American Humor, presents a travel book about his journey through Central and South America.Part travel book, part pop history, part comic memoir, The Wonder Trail is the story of Steve's riotous journey from Los Angeles to the bottom of South America.With a trail through Mexico City, ancient Mayan ruins, the jungles and coffee plantations and remote beaches of Central America, across the Panama Canal, by sea to Colombia, to the Amazon rainforest, to the Galápagos Islands, the Atacama Desert of Chile, and down to the jagged and wind-worn land of Patagonia at the very end of the Western Hemisphere, Hely encounters the colourful, the wild and the downright absurd. The Wonder Trail is a gallivant Steve-Hely style - razor-sharp, hilarious and fascinating.
