Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

At age 28, Newman, a journalist and onetime oilfield worker, set out from his home in Bethel, Ohio, to walk the world--unsponsored, paying his own way. Four years later, he had visited 20 countries and fulfilled a dream. Nearly everywhere, he found substitute Moms (much of his story veers toward the saccharine), and new friends put him in touch with their friends. He ran into a blizzard in the Pyrenees, wild boars in Algeria and narrowly escaped a flash flood in Australia. There were three life-threatening episodes, and he was arrested in Algeria, Yugoslavia and Turkey. Newman proved himself willing to learn from other cultures, was adaptable and appreciative of hospitality. Sentimentality aside, this is a brave tale of adventure. Photos not seen by PW. Literary Guild dual main selection.

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.
