4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By A Southern Reader on October 31, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Let your young man of twelve or so read this classic travel.geography book at your peril. He may be gone in the morning, swept away by Halliburton's great adventure book. It just doesn't get more exciting that this book. I reread it at 68 and still got a thrill and learned stuff. Unqualified five star recommendation

By Antiques Fan on January 30, 2014
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This classic was written in 1937 and describes such wonders as the then-new Empire state building (many pictures of this -- the author seems to have been very excited by it) as well as the Golden Gate Bridge, the Washington Monument, Niagara Falls, Mexico City and Rio. The pictures (circa 1930) are worth the price of the book (Yosemite, prior to any major development, is truly striking) and the stories are still worth reading.
