About The Book

The original college-dropout backpacker that started it all—this traveler’s classic is reissued here for the first time, and follows the adventures of Lee Meriwether in 1886 as he boards a steamer in Brooklyn and heads for Italy—to travel Europe on two quarters a day. Escaping a jail sentence in Italy for trying to sleep for free in the grounds of Pompeii and climbing into a volcano at midnight are just a few of the cheap adventures that Merriwether relates as he travels to Germany, Turkey, Greece, Austria, Switzerland, and England, all the while commenting on the sights he sees with an eye for social justice and his own special brand of humor.
