Lowell Thomas at mid century (and well into the latter part of it, having passed away in 1981) was a pioneer in radio broadcasting, and early newsreel films, who lived a most interesting, full and unusual life of travel to some of the world's most distant and exotic destinations. Here, in this 1956 book, one of over fifty he penned starting in the 1920's, he describes his travels. The book is a first edition, and the author has signed it in bright green ink as shown. Lowell Thomas was a highly educated man who became a wealthy businessman in the course of a lifetime. His pioneering newsreels of events starting with World War I, and on through the decades, marked an enormous advancement in popular media, long before the computer and YouTube became part of popular culture. He began working with NBC in 1930 and later was with CBS. Near the end of this long and rich life, Thomas was still traveling to destinations that other less fortunate beings could only dream about. See the net (wikipedia has a good biography) for much more on the life of this man. If you are a traveler, touching the page that his hand once touched should inspire you to see the world as he did. The book is in good condition, with a Hermosa Beach, California bookstore sticker in the front, and the dust jacket has a tear at lower left. This is not a mint copy but it is a very reasonable example, and the fact that it is signed adds another dimension.
