About the Author

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.

Well, as motorcycle tourer myself, I was hoping for either a description of the countries, people, roads and adventures, or a "human interest story" about the trials and tribulations of such long journey. This book is neither. A bit of this and a bit of that. A long prologue by the author's son and translator of the book does not ad value. Not bad, but not good either.

As a shoe-string traveler in my youth and an aspiring writer in middle age, I met a kindred spirit in the young Carlos Caggiani. This book struck a powerful chord within me as I enjoyed the rare privilege of viewing the world of 1966 through such an insightful perspective. I was particularly struck by his perspective of the United States in the not-so-distant past and the changes that have occurred and are still going on. I don't read Spanish but can only assume that the translation in to English was well done as the book certainly captivated me.

I had the pleasure to read this truly amazing story in its native language, Spanish. The intricate details of this man's journey are nothing short of awe-inspiring. Each chapter is more engaging than the last, and your respect for the courage it took Carlos to make this journey during a time of revolution and civil unreset grows with each word. Being able to pen a memoir as remarkable as this is open to so few people, we're truly blessed to have Carlos share his story. 5 stars.

I so enjoyed reading "Tracks and Horizons!" I loved Caggiani's descriptive and poignant narrative of his exciting journey. I found myself cheering him on through his triumphs and defeats. The book was interesting, compelling, humorous and entertaining. Even though the trip happened a long time ago, we can benefit today from the author's experiences of humanity, enterprise, endurance, perseverence, determination and spirit. Thank you for sharing your journey with all of us!

The restless spirit in all of us comes alive when encountering a story like this. It's like a passport to a different age, an age when the world wasn't as Mcdonalized as today, wasn't as tame, and wasn't as boring. What a read.

Loved the book and Carlos for his low key descriptions of the hugely difficult international travel on a motor bike. especially a very old one like his Indian Chief.
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.

What a great read! Tracks and Horizons is truly an amazing story, filled with unique adventures throughout the whole world. I can't believe some of these things actually happened!!! This book is incredibly well written as well, making this an easy book to pick up, and not put down until you're done. Not only does it have fascinating journeys all around the world, but the types of connections and interactions with people are incredibly inspiring. I feel as though all it takes to find the meaning of life is to find a 1947 Indian and ride it around the world with hardly any money! I know that I've learned something wonderful about the world from reading this book.

A really good book. Inspiring! Next to no money and they have a wonderful trip on an old Indian. I am impressed by the generosity of all people that helped them. I miss the greatness of the USA as it was in the 50's
