If you were a young Bauhaus educated architect in the 1930’s what would you do? Why, don a pith helmet and argyles and hop aboard a customized Douglas Dragonfly with many clever features including a motion picture camera as well as a concealed revolver(!), and ride off to places that would give pause to travelers from any era! Of course! A real-life ‘Indy Jones’ of sorts, Robert Edison Fulton Jr. had himself an adventure that makes for riveting reading. Places like Afghanistan, Siam, Waziristan(?), and Malaya roll under his wheels as the story unfolds. Believe it or not, R. E. Fulton was able to shoot about 35,000 feet of dramatic documentary film during his amazing 1932 round-the-world ride. This is the very best of it. Each minute is filled with incredible long-lost images of roads, riding and experiences. Book by Robert E. Fulton, Jr. Softbound, 5.5"×8.5", 275 pp., b/w photos & illus. DVD is 53 minutes (#3296, sold separately), and is narrated by Fulton himself.
