THRILL-SEEKER

Canada's History - - BOOKS -

In this 1930 pho­to­graph taken in New York City, Aloha Wan­der­well stands to the right of a mod­i­fied Ford Model T with her trav­el­ling com­pan­ion, Wal­ter Wan­der­well. Aloha — ac­tu­ally Cana­dian Idris Hall — be­came fa­mous while trav­el­ling around the world in the 1920s, vis­it­ing places where cars were a rar­ity and pass­able roads were hard to find. In Aloha Wan­der­well: The BorderS­mash­ing, Record-Set­ting Life of the World’s Youngest Ex­plorer (Goose Lane Edi­tions, 424 pages, $24.95), Chris­tian Fink-Jensen and Ran­dolph Eus­tace-Walden draw from di­aries, news­pa­per ac­counts, and pre­vi­ously clas­si­fied doc­u­ments to tell of her many ad­ven­tures.
