Overview

"Rarely if ever in this nineteenth century has a man lived so strange and varied an existence. From the time that he came to manhood he was a wanderer; and how it chanced that he survived the many perils of his daily life is nothing less than a mystery."

He began life as a wealthy man and ended it in poverty and broken health. Yet he and his contemporaries considered his life one of success. Would that there existed more of such noble failures. In this age of materialism, Jack Jebb's life is one of an exciting, noble adventurer.

From his native England to the United States, Canada, and Mexico, this wanderer and seeker after fortune had indeed a strange career but one that resulted in a life lived more fully than any one hundred of his peers.

For the first time, this long-out-of-print book is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.
