Education of a Wondering Man
26 July 2008 | Salinas Puerto Rico
Book recommendation. I am on my second reading of this magnificent personal reflection by Louis L' Amour. The education portion resides in his extensive reading he did during his wandering years, plus the life's lesson he learned while knocking about during the Great Depression. His reading lists contained within the memoir are a gem and quiet extensive.
Louis quiet school at age 15 and left South Dakota to try and manage to stay alive and feed himself. He is the epitome of adventuring. He was a sailor, longshoreman, Hobo, worked in silver mines and also was a tough boxer. He traveled in all modes and all the while he had tons of reading material with him. He was a true lover of books as I think anyone who becomes such a success must be. What a great read!
