Author: Frank Clune
First published: 1951
Format: Hardcover 304 pages
In Hands Across the Pacific, Frank Clune writes of his return to a country he had not visited since before Woirld War I when, as a youth, he saw Canada from the view point of a roamer willing to "try anything once." Since those days he has steadily built up for himself, through the medum of his books, the reputation of being an acute observer, one whose opinions and interpretations are well worth attention. For those of his innumerable readers who are not able to see the world for themselves Clune covers the globe inquiring, assimilating, and summarizing. Yet here, it is hardly necessart to say, is no academic or coldly statistical approach. While he flies to Canada by Canadair, travels with assurance, and goes into conclave with "high-ups" Frank Clune still remains the intrepid, adventurous, irrepressible wanderer of the earlier days.
