After riding 16,000 kilometers from Canada through ten countries to his home in Brazil, the Long Rider, Filipe Masetti Leite’s life fell apart. So, what does he do? Saddle up and ride on, of course.
In this second volume in his Journey America trilogy, Filipe shares his fifteen-month adventure riding six horses from Barretos, Brazil, across three more countries, through windswept deserts, frozen mountains, and a scorched Patagonian landscape to Tierra del Fuego, the Land of Fire.
His path from the brave cowboy hero who arrived in Brazil in his book Long Ride Home is now a dark journey inward. Long Ride to the End of the World is a story of heartbreak and family, life and death, pain and love. His heart carries the great sadness of a father who has lost his son. At the same time, there is new hope in the passion he discovers meeting his flor del pago in the middle of the desert. Through it all, everyday heroes provide help and hope as Filipe and his horses complete another impossible odyssey.
“An incredible adventure about Western culture, resiliency, and community spirit.”
– Dana Peers, President of the Calgary Stampede, who chose Filipe as the 2020 Parade Marshal.
Filipe’s first book, Long Ride Home, will soon be a major motion picture.
The children of the Barretos Children’s Cancer Hospital (Hospital de Amor) are his inspiration for this journey.
