The autobiography of a man who set out to circumnavigate the globe on a budget... $80 is a meager sum for world-wide travel, even in 1953 when this book was written. "Robert Christopher hitchhiked rides on airplanes, jeeps, Greek army trucks, boats (large and small), and traveled on foot... In remote and far-flung parts of the world he found people friendly, sympathetic, and cooperative--including two woozy smokers in a Chinese opium den...If you like the light touch and exuberance of a young man who isn't afraid to sleep by the side of a Middle-Eastern road or hitch a ride on a passing dromedary, this is a book that will delight and entertain you." -excerpt from dust jacket flap.
