Americas Overland - The Driving Handbook

The short list of guidebooks/travel memoirs about road tripping through Mexico, Central America and South America just got a little longer, and a little more current.

Kim and Don Greene's Americas Overland - The Driving Handbook was published in June 2008 and contains information and forms collected up until April 2008.

It details the couple's trip through 16 countries and, according to their website, is the culmination of four years of research.

Americas Overland - The Driving Handbook can be added to a short list of guide books/travel memoirs that describe the road trip south on the Pan America Highway, which already includes:

1) Allan Weisbecker's In Search of Captain Zero: A Surfer’s Road Trip Beyond the End of the Road;

2) Richard and Amanda Liagato's Wide-Eyed Wanderers: A Befuddling Journey From The Rat Race to the Roads of Latin America & Africa; and

3) John and Harriet Halkyard's 99 Days to Panama.

Americas Overland - The Driving Handbook can be purchased through the couple's website for $29.95. plus shipping.

If you have bought the book already, we would like to know what you think of it.
