"Where you headed?" asked the man in a pick-up. Lihosit should have answered, "High adventure." The author of South of the Frontera; A Peace Corps Memoir describes how he hitchhiked along bleak Arizona highways, hacked a path through Honduran mountains in search of water, avoided caiman while riding bulls across flooded Bolivian savannah and grizzlies as he hunted caribou in bush Alaska, ran for his life after getting embroiled in Mexico City politics and more. These are uncommon tales and fascinating reading.
