Riassunto: This is a blow-by-blow account of journalist Boye Lafayette De Mente's 4-month long journey with Ben ["Captain Bligh!" Carlin across the North Pacific and Bering Sea on an amphibious jeep named Half-Safe--that made the Guinness Book of World Records. Am incredible adventure that included life-threatening incidents and encounters, and some amazing scenes that could have come out of National Geographic. A true-life intimate tale that is aptly named!
Dall'editore: In the spring of 1957 Tokyo-based journalist Boye Lafayette De Mente joined Australian adventurer Ben Carlin on an amphibious jeep called HALF-SAFE (from the deodorant slogan "Don't be Half-Safe!") on a journey from Tokyo to Anchorage, Alaska via the North Pacific, the Bering Sea and Shelikof Strait--an incredible adventure that made the Guinness Book of World Records.
De Mente was working for The Japan Times when Carlin arrived in Japan. During an interview, Carlin invited De Mente to join him for the final and longest leg of his round-the-world journey...because his latest "mate" had "jumped jeep" and he couldn't handle the thing by himself. The two left Tokyo on May 1 and arrived in Anchorage on September 1, after a remarkable voyage that is more compelling than fiction.
