    From his decision to leave school at fifteen to roam the world, to his recollections of life as a hobo on the Southern Pacific Railroad, as a cattle skinner in Texas, as a merchant seaman in Singapore and the West Indies, and as an itinerant bare-knuckled prizefighter across small-town America, here is Louis L'Amour's memoir of his lifelong love affair with learning--from books, from yondering, and from some remarkable men and women--that shaped him as a storyteller and as a man. Like classic L'Amour fiction, "Education of ... Show more

Beyond Excellence

by Jean G on May 15, 2014

Lamour describes in beautiful detail his view of the fundementals of his view of "education". Of course, his philosophy of life shines through his writing of this book even more so than his fiction which chronicals the building of his beloved America. It is a good read and a great source of good literature titles for those wanting to read more. I believe that Lamour would feel much sorrow if he were alive today to witness the decay of this once great country.

An Excellent Read

by TIPSD on Oct 21, 2008

This is the biography of a self-educated man. Through his worldwide, often harrowing, experiences in his travels, he continually persues the love of his life: reading. Covering an amazing variety of titles, he makes a list of his reading that would impress the most educated among us. This is a well written, truly inspiring book.
