Describes the 1925 horseback adventure through Peru and Central America all the way up to New York that took two and a half years to complete and depicts the obstacles, people and superstitious tales encountered along the way. From the southeast coast of South America through an expanse of Peruvian sands enroute to the West Coast, then onward through Central American jungles and rainforest, and finally to New York, Tschiffely's journey was considered impossible and absurd by many newspaper writers in 1925.

"In 1925 Aime Tschiffely, a Swiss teacher living in Argentina, set out on his epic ride with two Criollo horses, Mancha and Gato. The amateur explorer's goal was to travel 10,000 miles from Buenos Aires to Washington DC over some of the world's most inhospitable country. Their odyssey lasted two and a half years, forced horses and rider to survive near-impossible conditions, and ended with a hero's welcome at the White House."
