Unorthodox travel book in an autobiography of female wanderlust. A bad marriage served as the springboard, and Maud Parrish has covered the wide world from the 1890's on to today. Here, there and everywhere, with or without money, alone or with friends of the opposite sex, using married names where necessary, running gambling joints, earning her way by entertaining, riding the rails and taking airplanes. A study in contrasts, --enthusiastic, detailed, pulling few punches, the story of a female adventurer who manages to surmount all obstacles in her way, and succeeding in going where she wants. A book for the Juanita Harrison (My Great Wide Beautiful World) market. A zestful, lusty book.
