Ripped from his motorcycle by Colombian rebels and robbed of everything, adventure motorcyclist Glen Heggstad journeyed through South America, and the trip became a nightmare as he was forced to march through strange jungles carrying heavy equipment with assault rifles at his back. Even with all the hand-to-hand and sophisticated combat training Heggstad possessed, this chronicle shows that it was his shrewd thinking, precise planning and a "do-or-die" last act of desperation that eventually secured his freedom.
The shocking personal tale of an unimaginable journey through Central and South America, this travelogue details one man's capture by Colombia's rebel National Liberation Army and the eventual realization of his dream to complete his journey.
Glen Heggstad was the youngest Hells Angel ever voted in, and his story of harrowing capture by Colombian rebels has been featured on "48 Hours," "Larry King Live," MSNBC, a National Geographic Channel docudrama, and NPR. He is an international martial arts champion and the author of "One More Day Everywhere."
