Publisher's summary

**New 10th Anniversary Edition of the best-selling travel memoir.**

**2018 Indie Book Award for Memoir (Personal Struggle).**

**Re-live Falling Uphill with a new afterword that paints the journey in a light that only time can tell.** New bonus chapters.

In one week, Scott Stoll lost his job, his best friend, his girlfriend, and his confidence. Disillusioned with society, full of angst, suffering from depression and with nothing left to lose Stoll asked himself a question: "If I only have one life, one chance, if I could do anything, what would I do?"

His answer resulted in a 4-year and 25,752-mile odyssey around the world by bicycle using nothing more than a paper map as a guide. Stoll searched for answers to the great mysteries of life, vowing to find happiness or die trying. The quest wasn't easy. He was imprisoned, held hostage, mugged, run over, suspected of terrorism, accused of espionage, nearly trampled by elephants, wounded, diseased, heartbroken -- he nearly died a dozen times. But more importantly, Stoll discovered the wonders of the world, kindness among strangers, the meaning of life, peace, love, faith and -- Yes! -- in the last place left to look, he found happiness.

Re-live and re-imagine an archetypal adventure as a man stumbles through moments of pure survival and moments of pure enlightenment.
