View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This is the true tale of a 22-year old farmer's daughter's desire to explore the world stretching beyond the cornfields and cow pastures of her youth. It is the day-to-day account of the people, places and predicaments encountered from October, 1963, until the following May, traveling through 18 countries in Europe and the Middle East -- primarily hitching rides in everything from a horse-drawn coal wagon in Ireland to a military transport vehicle in Israel. *** Crossing the Atlantic (alone) on the S.S. United States *** Hurricane Flora hits (6th deadliest in recorded history) *** Meeting my Irish pen pal *** "Watch out for the beer bottles!" *** Really high in Amsterdam" *** Visits to the Red Light district *** Driver wants a kiss *** Crossing "Checkpoint Charlie" *** Fifteen Italian soldiers, a bag of chicken, and a jug of wine *** Into the volcano *** Climbing the Great Pyramid *** My pigeon falls into the Nile *** Fellow travelers sell their blood *** A night in jail *** Tomb dwellers and a bag of grass *** Slapping a police officer *** Does everybody around here sleep with a gun?!" *** Picking peaches on a kibbutz *** It's official. I'm worth 2 mares and 3 stallions. *** To Greece, to Cyprus, to the Riviera, to Paris, to New York City, to Wilmington, Del., to Kemblesville, Penna. Home at last! Illustrated with 20 color photos. "FUN!" (Craig Wilson, columnist, USA Today)
