Steve Hely, writer for 30 Rock, The Office and American Dad!, takes a trip south – all the way south. On a journey that takes in Mexico City, ancient Mayan ruins, the Panama Canal, Colombia, the Amazon rainforest, the Galápagos Islands, the Atacama Desert of Chile, and the jagged and wind-worn land of Patagonia, Hely encounters the colourful, the wild and the downright absurd. Part travel book, part pop history and part comic memoir, The Wonder Trail is a gallivant Steve-Hely style – razor-sharp, hilarious and fascinating.
