In Punta Arenas, Chile, in November 1998, Karl Bushby set out on one of the most remarkable journeys of modern times. His plan is as simple as it is extraordinary: to walk up the Americas, across the Bering Strait, through Asia, Russia and Europe, back through the Channel Tunnel and returning to Britain in 2009.
'Giant Steps' is the diary of the first part of Karl's extraordinary trip: trekking from one end of the Americas to the other. From the heat of the Nevada desert to the frozen rivers of Alaska, risking death in the notorious Darien Gap to imprisonment in Panama, this is Karl's raw, revealing and compelling account: an inspirational story of human endurance and adventure.
