Education of a Wandering Man

by author Louis L'Amour

In Education of a Wandering Man, author of perennially loved western adventure stories, Louis L’Amour, tells the story of his greatest adventure – his own life.

Louis L’Amour dropped out of school at age fifteen to “roam the earth”. He explored exotic places like Singapore, the West Indies, and the Old West. He lived among real cowboys, prospectors and waterfront toughs. He took jobs like merchant seaman, cattle skinner, and prizefighter. Throughout it all, he read voraciously – reflecting deeply on what he read and experienced.

In Education of a Wandering Man, we meet the man who integrated life and reading in a way that inspired his stories, nourished his spirit, thrilled his readers and showed others a “way out”.
