Read this because it was a book club choice. Much of the book was written some 40 years after his walkso some of the memories and events have probably benefited from hindsight and rose coloured glasses. Nevertheless, I think you get a good feel of how he felt as a 19 year old youth setting out on the adventure and vivid picture of the places he visited and the people he met; also a glimpse of a departed world. I found it a page-turner.
