The book is his own account of a life filled with adventure, in 1933 he joined the team for the Trans-Greenland Expedition. The expedition was to gain him an entry into the Guinness Book of Records for the longest self-supporting dog sledge journey.

His military career was equally remarkable, serving in the Russo-Finnish War and in Norway, leading covert operations from Corsica to Italy and France and working with French Resistance groups behind enemy lines.
