You will find the answer on page 291, Russ! Thanks for writing, glad you are enjoying.
Got it. Thanks.

Hey Steve, I really enjoyed your book, “The Wonder Trail.” I checked it out at the library. It was like I took the trip with you, with your interesting stories, and interesting people. I looked up many places on line as I read the book. Now I have to return the book full of dog ears!
Hi, Steve! I bought your audio book, The Wonder Trail, from Audible and I really loved it! Up until now, my favorite book by my favorite travel writer has been The Great Patagonian Express ( Paul Theroux). After reafing your book, I may have to revise the ranking……. Thank you for writing about your wonderful adventures. I also really appreciate the historical perspective you include for each country. Very helpful.
You mentioned sending a free PDF book, which I hope you will do.
Oh, and thanks for mentioning In Patagonia. I’m ordering it now……..
Yes, Virginia, I will send you a free copy — email me at helphely at gmail

Just finished listening and enjoying your audio book, Wonder Trail. Realized how different we filter listening to a story told to us compared to reading the written word, especially a travel book.
At the very end of Wonder Trail, you mentioned a free e-book. When you get around to it, I’d appreciate receiving it.
