The Flying carpet by Richard Halliburton( Book )

14 editions published between 1932 and 1936 in English and held by 745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

He was the most dashing, handsome adventure traveler America ever had. During the roaring 1920s and 30s he traveled the world like a whirlwind, rising his life performing daredevil stunts like swimming the Panama Canal, or diving into the accursed Mayan Well of Death, not once but twice. He was welcomed by royalty. He lived on Devil's Island. He enlisted in the French Foreign Legion. He flew a bi-plane upside down over the Taj Mahal. He was born in Tennessee but called the world his home. His name was Richard Halliburton, and today that name is sadly forgotten. . . . The Flying Carpet was his fourth, and most famous book and details his epic adventures flying a bi-plane through remote parts of the globe. . . .Yet even famed explorers are often overcome. Halliburton disappeared in 1939 while trying to sail a Chinese junk from China to San Francisco, the victim of a legendary typhoon. Thus The Flying Carpet is not just an adventure travel classic, full of photographs and surprises. It serves as a literary memorial to its dashing, globe-trotting author. -- Book cover
The seven league boots : a novel by Richard Halliburton( Book )

21 editions published between 1935 and 2010 in English and Czech and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Halliburton's fifth and last book, Seven League Boots, illustrates how he followed the orders to move fast, visit strange places, and meet anyone who was interesting with passion and abandon. America's favorite adventure writer dined with, Haile Selassie and rode the Rhinocerous Express in Ethiopia, had an audience with King Ibn Saud outside the gates of Mecca (which he had tried to sneak into), and finally rode an elephant over the Alps, following the tracks of Hannibal. This is Halliburton at his best, reckless and romantic, and it is the last chapter of a life grown tragic. Nearing 40, physically exhausted, and in financial trouble, Halliburton thought to roll the dice once again, hoping that the charm that had always saved him in the past would materialize one more time. Soon after finishing this book, he embarked on his last, fatal, journey

Cestopis amerického novináře, cestovatele a populárního spisovatele, věnovaný Latinské Americe.

Této metodě značně napomáhá to, že autor volí cesty historicky nebo kulturně zajímavé. Takto se vydává po stopách Cortézových do Tenochtitlánu, navštěvuje kultovní středisko starých Mayů na Yucatánu, prožívá osudy Robinsona Crusoea, plave Panamským kanálem z Atlantiku do Pacifiku, pobývá na Ďábelských ostrovech a prochází nejobávanějším vězením apod
