Who Was Richard Halliburton?
Join us to learn about Richard Halliburton. Who was he? Halliburton was the first person to climb Fujiyama alone in winter, the first American to swim the Hellespont, spent nights with Devils Island inmates hearing their horror stories, swam Panama Canal with crocodiles, flew the nooks and crannies of the world in a two-winged, open cockpit plane, heard the confession of a Romanov assassin, dove into the Maya Well of Death (twice) and marched with the French Foreign Legion. In addition, he found time to fill his best sellers with history, geography, art and explorations.
