About this title


Tells of the author's four-year trek around the world on foot, and of the ordinary but kind people he met along the way

From Library Journal:

At age nine, Newman dreamed of walking around the world. Nineteen years later, in 1983, the journalist set out from his Ohio home, traversing 20 countries and hiking about 10,000 miles in four years. Newman chronicles his journey, which he undertook to prove that there are hospitable, good people around the world and that our planet is not doomed. He finds plenty of good people, but the most exciting reading involves his arrests in Turkey, Algeria, and Yugoslavia, and his run-ins with sundry officials, etc. It is also great fun to watch Newman, who had never ventured out of the United States, mature and become more acclimated to foreign cultures. The travel feat is incredible, but the book is not as enthralling as one might expect, possibly because the scope and length does not allow much insight into each culture and country.
