From the cover: “The Darien Gap is a place of legend. The only break in the Pan-American Highway, which runs from Alaska to the" tip of South America, it is an almost impregnable strip of swamp, jungle and cloud forest between the vast landmasses of North and South America. Stories of abduction and murder there are rife and in recent years more people have successfully climbed Everest or trekked to the South Pole than have crossed the Darien Gap.
