History Revealed - - GREAT ADVENTURES PAN-AMERICAN HIGHWAY -

Once on dry land, the trav­ellers had to ne­go­ti­ate their way back to Detroit. The car and ev­ery­thing in it – in­clud­ing all Richard­son’s notes and film footage – was very nearly lost when the Ply­mouth al­most rolled over­board while be­ing loaded onto a boat, but disas­ter was nar­rowly avoided (at the ex­pense of much da­m­age to the ve­hi­cle). Af­ter sail­ing to Buenos Aires, they drove 3,500 miles through Bo­livia and Peru, and from Lima took the Santa Clara to New York. The book Ad­ven­tureSouth was pub­lished in 1942, and Richard­son toured al­most ev­ery state in the US screen­ing the film and lec­tur­ing about the Pan-Amer­i­can High­way, which bit-by-bit was paved all the way to the Panama Canal.
