Written by Barbara Lindner Wood, this is an autobiography which ì reads like an adventure novel. The opening pages tell Barbara's ì story in Ocala, Florida as an aviatrix and meteorologist just ì before America enters World War II. She meets her husband, Ben, ì at Ocala airport's army pilot training school. They marry in ì Texas, move with their first son to Washington DC and Ben enters ì the US Foreign Service. This new phase of her life includes ì stints in The Philippines, Belgium, Vietnam, Cambodia, and ì London.
Her marriage fails and as a lively divorcee in the tumultuous ì Sixties, Barbara oscillates between Paris, Washington DC and the ì Mediterranean island of Sardinia. Camping in the back of her ì customized white Land Rover (illustrated on the book cover), she ì gallivants all over Europe and Turkey. By the 1980s she is back ì in the US on a garlic farm she starts in Virginia. During all of ì these years she encounters celebrities such as Garbo, Nureyev, ì Henry Moore, Johnny Weismuller, Joe Frazier, Jack and Jackie ì Kennedy - to mention just a few. Barbara says: "I was fortunate ì to be often in the right place at the right time. As a free ì spirit I traveled the world, having tremendous fun."
