A small-town Pennsylvania boy, brought up in a foster home, who hitchhikes around the country beginning at the age of 13. A young man with a thirst for learning who educates himself in the arts. A naval officer during World War II who island hops across the South Pacific. A text book editor who publishes his first book at the age of 40 and wins a Pulitzer. A best-selling author who feels at home anywhere in the world and is blessed with the singular gift for making the most exotic people and places come alive on the page. James A. Michener is all of this. And here in this book, he tells the story only he can tell--the story of his life.
