(From Planeta.com Journal): One of the best books of the year, The Gringo Trail is a riotous mix of humor and scandal. It documents the travels of three Brits who go to South America for different reasons, though drug taking takes center stage. This is quite an unusual book, and it introduces me to Summersdale Publishing, "publishing the grooviest books on the planet." The Gringo Trail confirms that description. Keep an eye on this author! Besides this book, he spends his time with Tourism Concern, a prestigious UK group dedicated to improving tourism. I look forward to reading more of his work.
