These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside Seven Legs Across the Seas - A Printer's Impressions of Many Lands:Look inside the book: In earlier years money for traveling expenses was of little concern, for the fascination that accompanies prowling about freight trains seeking an empty box car, or the open end door of a loaded one in which to steal a ride, or of turning one's back to the tender of a locomotive to protect the eyes from hot cinders coming from a snorting passenger engine while standing on the draughty platform of a 'blind' baggage car-one without end doors-the train at the same time traveling at a speed of from 45 to 50 miles an hour-the 'cinder days' during the catch-as-catch-can periods of traveling through coastwise tracts of country, across unbroken prairie stretches and over mountain fastnesses, are pleasant ones to recall, not forgetting the hungry, cold and wet spells that all men meet with who are enticed by the gritty allurements to beat their way about the country on railroad trains. ...As the major portion of my travel was by water, the nautical word Leg has been chosen as a designating term for the different sections of the world visited, embracing South American cities, South Africa, Zululand, and Victoria Falls, in Rhodesia, Australia, New Zealand and principal South Sea Island groups, then back to Africa and up the East Coast to Zanzibar and Mombasa, next through British East Africa to and across v Victoria Nyanza into Uganda.
