Additional Information

Richard Halliburton ran away from his hometown in Memphis at the age of nineteen to lead an extraordinary and dramatic life of adventure. Against the backdrop of the Golden Age, the Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression, Halliburton's exploits around the globe made him an internationally known celebrity and the most famous travel writer of his time. From climbing Mount Olympus in Greece to swimming the Panama Canal and literally flying all the way to Timbuktu, Halliburton experienced and wrote about adventures that others never even believed possible. His youthful spirit and bohemian lifestyle won the hearts of millions. Author R. Scott Williams details the spectacular exploits of a true adventurer.

Great book! Very inspiring. Makes you want to move beyond the normal of everyday and pursue your dreams. Very well written, informative, and thought provoking.
I enjoyed the book about a local family and Richard's adventures. Great insight as to the early 1900s, college life and Richard's adventures around the world. His books were on the best seller list, and I have just started his 1st book "The Royal Road to Romance" and he really is a good writer.
This is a wonderful book! I thought I knew about Richard Halliburton and his brief life, but Scott Williams has brought more of Hallibuton's life and his relationship with his parents to the forefront. A must read for anyone who has an adventurous spirit, and a longing to travel the world!
