KIRKUS REVIEW

It belongs in the Halliburton school of adventure travel, without the saccharine. A story of bumming and hitch hiking and gambling and occasionally earning their way around the world -- and very good entertainment it is, for those who stay at home and read about it. Two young Australians, with $500 between them, set out to see the world, with no cares on their shoulders and no predetermination as to where they are going or what they are going to do when they get there. Which is just as well, for they rarely get there and they don't do what they think they will when they do get there. They discover there is a depression on, after a few hints to that affect, but nothing dampens their spirits, and the world wags on. Good entertainment, and should be easy selling and easy renting. Men, perhaps, more than women -- but don't neglect those among your women customers who liked such books as Cheapjack, Brazilian Adventure, etc.
