The Glorious Adventure book. This book details his attempts to retrace the travels of Odysseus, even finding the Cyclop's cave. Halliburton was definitely a gay romantic (in the broadest sense of the term), which makes this not a book for the hard-boiled. but it just make the rest of us yearn for our own Odyssey.

Tauris Parke Paperbacks. Bloomsbury USA. Book Format. Richard Halliburton is certainly one of the most interesting "travel writers" I've had the pleasure of reading. He spent the 1920's abroad on romantic adventures and "The Glorious Adventure" is no exception.

By (author) Richard Halliburton. Free delivery worldwide. Battling through the Straits of Messina, Odysseus's Scylla and Charybdis, he explored Sicily and Corfu before setting out for the shores of Ithaca, long-forgotten home for one, the end of an adventure for another.

Battling through the Straits of Messina, Odysseus’s Scylla and Charybdis, he explored Sicily and Corfu before setting out for the shores of Ithaca, long-forgotten home for one, the end of an adventure for another.

It was perhaps inevitable that Richard Halliburton, such a romantic, imaginative wanderer, would follow in the footsteps of another legendary traveller - Odysseus. Halliburton's second book, The Glorious Adventure describes his journey through the Mediterranean in the shadow of his mythical hero. In Greece, Halliburton charged Mount Olympus 'in order to visit the gods that dwelled there'; he swam the Hellespont as Byron had before him and journeyed on to Troy, where Odysseus's long adventure began. He sailed to Stromboli in the Tyrrhenian Sea, home of Aeolus god of the winds; then to the Bay of Naples, Circeo - 'island' of Circe - and Li Galli, the siren isles that shimmered off the Amalfi coast. Battling through the Straits of Messina, Odysseus's Scylla and Charybdis, he explored Sicily and Corfu before setting out for the shores of Ithaca, long-forgotten home for one, the end of an adventure for another. As epic and eventful as The Odyssey itself and one of the most captivating travel books of the 20th Century, The Glorious Adventure evokes the romance of another time, when heroes and gods walked the earth.

  • Read all the reviews of all of Richard Halliburton's works! This is perhaps the most fun. After discussing the Odyssey and the many places geographically that Ulysses traveled. . . I ordered this first edition, for my private student who was then on his way to Greece for the summer. Oh, that one could still follow in Halliburton's footsteps, reliving the travels of Ulysses as Richard Halliburton had done. Can it still be possible? Let's all hope so. . and encourage others to follow their passions, as certainly as did Halliburton. I keep my hardbound first edition at my bedside, and keep ordering this paperback copy for my young students who still come to me. . . wanting to feel that passion that forges our learning adventures. . . and assistance and nurturing in finding their own passions.

  • Delivered quickly and in mint condition. I haven't finished reading it yet, but so far it makes interesting fantastical reading of a young Richard Halliburton on his expedition amongst the ruins of Athens and tracing the route of Odysseus. Its a good idea to keep a map handy of Ancient Greece so you can enjoy a more interactive experience.

  • I loved his Oxident and Orient works. I could't get past the first 20 pages of this one after trying twice.

  • Interesting story but writing is a little odd (like it was someone talking, just doesn't quite flow like good writing does) and might be better as an audio book

  • Halliburton big influence in my desire to see World when read his books in 40s. Have all of them.

  • I worked the night shift as a union printer in the late 1970s. I was in my 20s and had done some exotic excursions to Europe, etc. I loved adventure and also loved to read great books. Fred Davies was nearing retirement just as I was beginning what I thought would be my lifetime trade. He worked night shift by desire, I because I had no seniority. One evening Fred came to me and said "I notice that you take a book into the locker room during lunch and read. It seems that you really love to read eh?"
    That started my "literary friendship" with Fred Davies. He started bringing in books from "his time" and one day he gave me a copy of an original Richard Halliburton book. I devoured it and was awe struck by this man. In those days the only way to get more Halliburton books was through rare book stores. I started buying each of his books until I had the entire collection and have read all of them many times. I gave this 4 stars only because its not the best ...but 4 stars still means it is outstanding. Richard Halliburton should be a person that everyone in America has read or studied in school. But sadly, very few people know of this original superhero....get this or any of his books...you will be hooked.....

  • Here we go again. I have already given comments on this book. For the number of books I purchase I do not appreciate having these repetitive requests. I have too much "on my plate" to have the annoyance of this such duplication.

  • Exciting and interesting book. I hope more readers will learn about Halliburton's wonderful adventures.
