About the Author

Peter Fleming (1907-1971), the brother of novelist Ian Fleming, wrote for the London Evening Standard, the Spectator, the BBC, and the Times of London. His travels took him to Mexico, Brazil, Russia, China, Japan, Tibet, and Manchuria. He died in a hunting accident in Scotland.

Reviews

"Mr. Fleming has a really exciting story to tell." --Evelyn Waugh

"One of the most amusing and engaging travel records ever written. . . . If Max Beerbohm had been sent out to search for Dr. Livingstone and had written a book about it, the result might have been something like Brazilian Adventure." --The New Yorker

"[I]f not the best travel book every written--though I think arguably it is--remains hands-down the funniest." --The Financial Times
