Garden City, New York: Garden City Publishing Company. 1927. Reissue. 354 pp. It was perhaps inevitable that Richard Halliburton, the romantic, imaginative wanderer, would follow in the footsteps of another legendary traveler--Odysseus. Halliburton's second book recounts his journey through the Mediterranean in the shadow of his mythical hero. In Greece, Halliburton charged Mount Olympus in order to visit the gods that dwelled there; he swam the Hellespont as Byron had before him and journeyed on to Troy, where Odysseus's long adventure began. Sailing to Stromboli in the Tyrrhenian Sea; then on to the Bay of Naples, to Circeo--island of Circe--and Li Galli, the siren isles that shimmered off the Amalfi coast. Battling through the Straits of Messina, Odysseus's Scylla and Charybdis, he explored Sicily and Corfu before setting out for the shores of Ithaca, long-forgotten home for one, the end of an adventure for another. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Richard Halliburton (9 January 1900 - presumed dead after 24 March 1939) was an American traveler, adventurer, and author. Best known today for having swum the length of the Panama Canal and paying the lowest toll in its history - thirty-six cents - Halliburton was headline news for most of his brief career. His final and fatal adventure, an attempt to sail a Chinese junk, the Sea Dragon, across the Pacific Ocean from Hong Kong to the Golden Gate International Exposition in San Francisco, made him legendary.Keywords: BIOGRAPHY ADVENTURE TRAVEL GLORIOUS ADVENTURE RICHARD HALLIBURTON ULYSSES HOMER ODYSSEY Condition Notes: Very good.
