In July 2011, Ian Lacey cycled unsupported out of Deadhorse, Alaska into the unknowns of America’s wild northern frontier. Over 15 months and 27,000 km later, he arrived in Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina – the southernmost city in the world.
Battling a chronic illness and leaving the girl he loves at home, Ian uses human power to see a side of the world many often miss. He journeys through days of isolation in Canada, camps in the silent beauty of the Baja desert, climbs through the ice-covered Andes, and delights in the tranquillity of Chilean Patagonia on his way to El Fin del Mundo – ‘The End of the World’.
This book details Ian’s fascinating experiences over two continents and in 15 countries as he sets out to read a quite unique story of people and place, all from the saddle of a bicycle.
