|Plot Summary of One More Horizon: Ohio to Hong Kong the Long Way|
|"Pedaling a bicycle around the world was a lifelong dream, but everyone told him it could not be done. Dismissing the skeptics, disinterested sponsors, and a woefully inadequate bank account, Scott Zamek resolved to try. Some 20,000 miles and millions of pedal revolutions later, Zamek had encountered Bengal tigers, angry mobs, prison and sandstorms. He had run up against the Sahara and Gobi deserts, the Himalaya and the Karakoram mountains. He suffered hypothermia and heatstroke. And it was in his moments of greatest need, good Samaritans intervened to help.
"One More Horizon" takes us on a roller coaster ride of endurance and fatigue, success and setback, thieves and kind-hearted souls. But what shines through in the end, is a reminder of all that is right with the human spirit."
Vishvas Kumar, Resident Scholar
