This is an amazing book. I first read it before I began my first world travel in the late 1980s, then passed my dog-eared copy on to a friend from England who was heading to Africa and India on her own. I read it so many times before giving it away that I've memorized portions of the book. In my recent trip to a developing nation, many of Fred's guiding words got me through some tough times with skill. Sound advice and highly recommended Published.

Robert Fred Moore (September 7, 1911 – November 23, 1952), was an American artist and character animator for Walt Disney Animation Studios. Often called "Freddie," he was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. Despite limited formal art training, he rose to prominence at Disney very quickly in the early thirties due to his great natural talent and the tremendous appeal of his drawings, which are still greatly admired by animators and animation fans.

Fred - if you're out there - sure wish you would do an updated version to this guide!

The book was written at least 20 years ago. Some things he suggests, I just wouldn't do in today's world. Still a good read

I consider myself to be a pretty seasoned traveller now. But it's this book that really started it all for me. I bought it from a local outdoor store in Alabama, just before I went to live in Egypt for a year. I read it on the way over, and at least 2 more times while living there. It's absolutly one of my favorite books, and has inspired me to go to some far off, out of the way places.
The advice he imparts is classic, from how to choose where to go, how to get there, what to do when you get there, and how to reintegrate yourself when you get back. He's got chapters on nearly every aspect of travel, from transportation, to troubles, to health on the road, and even how to deal with locals and the other travelers you may encounter along the way.
He intersperses his advice with small blocks of travelogue to highlight a particular piece. Many are his own experiences, but others are submitted by other travelers. My own favorite, is "Garbage Truck Overland."
If you've never traveled, you must read this book before you go. It will inspire you to get off your duff and head out there where there are no tourists. If you're a traveler, you'll find many anecdotes that will make you guffaw, and reminisce on your own trips.
Buy This Book!!

I bought this when it came out after I had traveled through remote parts of Africa and wished that I had read this beforehand. My travel guide had been a boyfriend employed by the peace corps who could have better prepared me for my experience as it was very very different than a road trip across the states. If anything, it will make you dream of traveling.

My husband and I read and re-read this book in the early 1990's before strapping on our backpacks and taking a 14-month trek around the planet. He loved the anecdotes, I loved the comprehensive how-to's. We have always referred to it as our traveler's bible.... as Fred covers all areas - when to go (now!), where to go (anywhere, just go), what to take (less than you think), working, transportation, health, re-entry, and so on. What has become almost a mantra for us is Fred's reference to overcoming inertia. Now, having accepted our first overseas employment, we have dusted off this book to help us get out of our current rut. Technology has changed, the world continues to shrink, and the need for global citizens grows daily. Go see the world as a traveler, rather than a tourist.

I read this book years ago and have never forgotten it. This is a great book and anyone planning or even just wanting to travel should read it. I have traveled extensively, but I have never been to most of the places Fred writes about, like India or Africa. However, I still found the information in this book to be extremely useful in places like Mexico, Eastern Europe, Thailand, or really everywhere I have ever been. For years it has influenced my behavior and thinking about why I travel and intercultural exchanges in general. There is nothing in this book which is off the mark or inaccurate, even though it was written a while ago. If you have any wanderlust at all, read this book!

My Mom bought this for me when I was a teenager in the 80's living in a rural Illinois town. It inspired me to go and see the world and not be afraid and try to consider the world and its people on their own terms. Also, it's worth it just for some of the travelling stories that are thrown in every few pages.
