1928. With 48 illustrations. This is not your ordinary autobiography. Walter was thrown on his own at the age of fourteen in Chicago, where the book starts. Appropriately, the first chapter is called: Milk and Murder. The story travels swiftly, cuts its way through amazing adventures. His capture by Pancho Villa's bandits; logging in British Columbia; in Alaska being what Ellery Walter calls, a night watchman where there isn't any night are some of the extraordinary events in his life. At nineteen occurs what makes this book more than the history of an active, courageous boy. The author left Seattle all but broke and with a bad infection in his foot. At this point, perhaps, begins the real spiritual growth of the boy, for in this period he loses his foot, he learns about life all over the world, he travels 45,000 miles, working his way-and earning it-on crutches. But that is not all. He has not only gone around the world on one leg. He has learned how to look at the world on one leg.
