The Royal Road to Romance (Paperback)
The Royal Road to Romance is the travel classic in which a happy, young romanticist goes laughing and beating and fighting his vagabond way into the glamorous corners of the world.
When Richard Halliburton graduated from Princeton, he chose adventure over a career, traveling to far away places. This vivid book tells what happened, from a break-through Matterhorn mountain ascent in the Alps to being jailed for taking forbidden pictures on Gibraltar. "One of the most fascinating books of its kind ever written."
In 1939 the swashbuckling author was lost at sea in the Pacific.
