KIRKUS REVIEW

Autobiographical reminiscences of ""Gentleman Jack"" Dalton, horseman, prizefighter, round the world traveler. From French-Irish parents, born in Texas, this tells of the long trail that led from home to a Maharajah's palace, from the West and ranch life, to showboats, circus, continental appearances, and experiences in the Far East. Traveling with his beloved Eppie, his Jewish manager, and his taciturn man, Stevens, meeting good luck and bad, the author gives quite a picture of international prizefighting, the adventures open to a rolling stone, the end of the story with his return home on Christmas Day. A bustling sort of tale, with its distinction in the turn-of-the-century quality of happy-go-lucky wandering. Not page one news- but of interest to sports fans.
