KIRKUS REVIEW

Lowell Thomas lets the late famed explorer and world adventurer tell his story in his own words. It is a wise decision, for the story is so rich and exciting it needs little heightening and commentary. Wilkins, a South Australian who became one of the first men to fly across the Arctic, led a fantastic life which included being kidnapped, participating in the Balkan War as a pioneer movie cameraman and in World War I as a photographer. His later adventures aboard the Graf Zeppelin and Arctic submarining and flying, round out an exciting portrait.
