Stated First Edition. There is light foxing to the endpapers (only). Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. The text is immaculate; absolutely no reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The price-clipped dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has modest chipping at the extremities.

"...Many famous men and women have been reporters. Many have had adventures in their personal lives equal to any they covered as reporters. Here are seventeen stories of such adventures.
Here you will find Daniel Defoe, shackled in the pillory, facing a London mob. Here you will see Dr. Samuel Johnson, trying to catch a ghost in Cock Lane. Here is Henry Morton Stanley, pursuing Dr. Livingstone into the dark depths of Africa. Here is Nellie Bly, racing around the world for The New York World, Joseph Pulitzer's great paper.
Here is Winston Churchill, escaping from his captors in the Boer War...Ernest Hemingway, facing death in Italy...Ernie Pyle, learning the true strength of Americans...Hal Boyle, saving a child in the burning capital of Korea.
These are great people -- as well as great reporters..."
