9781439256817: Memories by the Mile

Working for the Associated Press for thirty-five years, George Wilbur had a chance to see the world—and took it. His debut travelogue and memoir, Memories by the Mile, spans fifty years and recalls tight spots, tender moments, and a bird’s eye view of Europe, the Far East, South America, and Australia. Wilbur and his wife traveled to over seventy-five countries—and do they have a story! From being charged by a rhinoceros and, in Czechoslovakia, risking arrest by Communist police to huffing and puffing up the Great Wall of China, riding an aircraft into the eye of a typhoon, and almost drowning near the Fiji Islands—there’s rarely a dull moment. Twenty-one distinct and memorable stories in all, with chapter titles like “Dinner Time at Ngorongora,” “An Ancient and Inscrutable Land,” and “Bloodied Beaches and Beaujolais,” Wilbur shows readers the big, beautiful world—and what it has to offer.
