Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Carlos Caggiani was born in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1940. In 1966, he emigrated to the United States where he studied and worked in engineering. He obtained several patents in the fields of medical, aviation and industrial turbines, retiring in 2002 as vice president of a multinational corporation. In 1998 he wrote "Deshojando Recuerdos", a book of poems in Spanish about his childhood. In 2000, he wrote "El Nuevo Martín Fierro", a compilation of poems about his adventurous two year motorcycle trip. His Spanish language "Huellas y Horizontes", written in 2009, is a more detailed history of his amazing journey around the world on his 1947 Indian Chief motorcycle. The English version, "Tracks and Horizons", is a faithful translation completed in 2010 by his son Ed, working in conjunction with Carlos to ensure not only the accuracy of the events, but the tone and emotion of his original Spanish telling.

I've got about a bit on a bike but never anything like Carlos and I was amazed at how he adapted to difficult weather, uncomfortable living conditions, little money and also the way he managed difficult circumstances when he had little or no experience of that sort of thing prior to leaving his South American homeland. And he wrote about it so laconically and easily. I am not surprised that he had to migrate to America to achieve what he was capable of and its little wonder he eventually became a top executive in a company there. I also liked the fact that in his later successful years when he wrote the book he still seemed to have the same simple but admirable attitude to life, people and the world. An excellent man and author.
