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
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.
