Summary: A biography of the adventurer, soldier, and author whose "enviably colorful life took off when in 1934, at the age of eighteen, he decided to walk across Europe. Before the year was out, he had trekked through nine countries and taught himself three languages, while his enthusiasm and curiosity for every kind of experience made him equally happy in caves or country houses, among shepherds or countesses"--Dust jacket flap.
