This is a very rare book and a book of rare experiences. The author spent his early days on a Texas ranch. He enlisted for the Spanish War and finally went to Japan, where he opened the O'Reilly School of English in Kobe. He served as a bodyguard for a Chinese rent collector, took part in the great wheelbarrow strike, was bouncer in a Chinese theatre, instructor in the Chinese army, and once more was on his way, this time back to America. Ultimately he arrived in Chicago "hoboing" most of the way. Then came a great deal of experience in Mexico with Villa, Oroczo, Zapata and other rebel leaders.
