Seven League Boots, which was first published in 1935 and his fifth and final book, details American adventurer Richard Halliburton’s epic adventures in a variety of remote places. The author of The Royal Road to Romance, who seems incapable of writing a dull page, reports each of his new adventures with the same contagious zest, the same charm and swing and dash that have won such unrivaled popularity for his other tales. In this fifth and final book, richly illustrated throughout with striking pictures, the reader will be taken on a journey of Halliburton’s dinner with Emperor Haile Selassie in Ethiopia; his interview with the infamous assassin of Czar Nicholas II in Russia; his attempt to sneak into the forbidden city of Mecca; and, finally, his elephant march over the Alps in the tracks of Hannibal. It is Halliburton at his best, reckless and romantic.
