9780888396662: A Young Falconer's Walkabout: Hitchhiking Through Europe and Africa in the Sixties

In early 1963, with the world on the cusp of innocence forever lost, a young and carefree Lawrence Crowley journeyed across Europe and Africa in pursuit of his passion for falconry - and a bit of fun and adventure. Money was scarce, but enthusiasm abundant. Sleeping arrangements were unused jail cells, the decks of ships, or sides of roads; the food, and sometimes lots of drink, challenged a cast iron stomach; transportation ran the gamut from a VW 'Bug' to hitching rides with smugglers. Larry's descriptions of the ready friendship of complete strangers and his remarkable experiences working with renowned falconers transport us back to that time and place as we travel with him on his personal odyssey. A Beautiful snapshot of a world and people now gone; we are reminded that this unique adventure could not be repeated today.
