Iconic Baja California, surrounded by the pounding Pacific Ocean and crystal calm Sea of Cortez, is an isolated and proud land woven together by ancient myths, legends and amazing true stories. Zo captures the spirit of this beautiful, awe-inspiring and intriguing place on a solo 3000 mile adventure on the roads less travelled, encountering a myriad of surprises along the way.

She quickly falls under its magical spell and discovers the authentic and unique side of Baja and its people, who are so culturally diverse and proudly different from the rest of Mexico.

The landscapes are extreme, sometimes unforgiving, but always spellbinding. Rich fertile valleys merge into arid cacti-strewn deserts. Mountains melt into forests and the wildest beaches and bays, home to the richest diversity of marine life.

Reflecting life "out on the road," Zo also digs up a treasure trove of her other travel story gems and cleverly intertwines them with this story.

Zo Cano, whose name means Life, is an adventurous traveller, writer, and photographer.

Born in Hereford, England, in the 1960s she moved to live and work in Paris for ten years before working in New York and finally Boston, with extended periods in Brazil and Asia for the international events and exhibition business.

Zo started rowing competitively and took the challenge to skiff the entire length of the Thames from its source in the centre of England to Greenwich. She has crossed the Peruvian Andes on horseback, motorcycled solo across the American continent, and still travels extensively.

Zo now lives in London and is also the author of the highly successful books Bonneville Go or BustOn the Roads Less Travelled and Southern Escapades.
