Author(s): Levison Wood
Levison Wood begins his biggest challenge yet. Beginning in the north-eastern tip of Mexico, Levison will walk the entire length of Central America, through eight countries before attempting to cross the treacherous Darien Gap into Colombia and South America. Walking the Americas will see Levison return to Mexico, where he lived for three months, and Belize - where he trained as a soldier with the British Army - before stepping into a part of the world he's never visited before and some of the most diverse, beautiful and unpredictable regions on earth. Both thrilling and emotional, Walking the Americas is the story of a very personal journey, about endurance, empathy and challenging yourself to be the best that you can be.
