STRIKES ONCE by Doug Allan


Email this review


Big -- and bad -- moments in the lives of people who have been interviewed for the television program, Thrills and Chills from Everywhere. A personal experiences symposium of unique experiences, with enough authority behind them to make them credible; -- Bob Bartlett and sea yarns; David Mannix and training an eagle to hunt giant lizards in Mexico; John Craig's threat from an octopus while deep sea diving; Father Hubbard and flight over an Arctic volcano; Louis Cotlaw and gorillas in the Belgian Congo; Cyril Von Baumann and magic in Brazilian jungles; Ben Burman with the Free French in Africa; Harold McCracken and hunting the Alaska grizzly: Dr. James Clark and Mongolian bandits, and many others. It is like becoming a member of the Explorers' Club for a few adventurous hours.
