Publisher's Summary

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.

Critic Reviews

"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."

Adventure in America

I had never heard of Tim Cahill before listening to this audiobook. To be honest I was trawling Audible for something different. I really enjoy travel and non-fiction adventure stories so I gave this a try. I loved it. True, I was a little dissapointed that he didn't go into much detail about the places he travelled through but this book is about breaking records. If you want the other type of travel writing go for Michael Palin or Bill Bryson. It describes how the record was broken and all the psycological as well as geographical challenges they went through. I have just downloaded Jaguars ripped my flesh (a great title from the start) and hope this is as good. Jeff Harding seems to be narrating lots of books these days and he does this one justice.
