KIRKUS REVIEW

Experienced automobile travelers do the long trek through South America, via the completed -- and proposed -- Pan American Highway, from Venezuela to Colombia to the Panama border, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil. A full report is given on costs, exchanges, equipment, on roads, routes, mechanical mishaps and servicing, on hotels, taverns, camping out, emergencies, etc. There is no lack of notice for views, scenic and historical points, temperatures, detours, floods, towns and capitals, tropics and mountains, natives and officials, language, courtesy, touring laws and customs. An angle of South American good fellowship to be cemented by automobile touring, that should be a good guide for future travelers, recounting as it does the fat as well as the lean moments, the dream of the great highway as well as its present reality.
