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.
Written in 2009 and told through a series of journal entries and first person narrative, his Spanish language "Huellas y Horizontes" chronicles the 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.
