From the southeast coast of South America through an expanse of Peruvian sands en route 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. However, after two and a half years on horseback with two of his trusty and tough steeds, this daring trekker lived to tell his best-selling tale.

"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."
