Aloha Wanderwell Call to Adventure
“Aloha Wanderwell: Call To Adventure” captures in vivid detail Aloha’s own impressions of the long-forgotten Wanderwell Expedition… sweeping through Italy just as Mussolini and the Fascisti were consolidating their power… braving food riots and hostile mobs in Germany, a country then reeling from the harsh reparations demanded by the victorious allies of World War I.
She camped at the foot of the Great Sphinx in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings… drove into Palestine, where the Jews were attempting to build a new nation… across the arid lands of India, towing the Model-Ts across rivers by water buffalo.
Aloha traversed the highlands of Portuguese East Africa, and nearly died of thirst in the Sudanese desert… disguised herself as a man and prayed in Mecca… hunted elephants in Indo-China, became a confidante of Chinese bandits.
During her journey, she was granted the title of “Honorary Colonel” in the Red Army of Siberia and hob-nobbed with Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks during a visit to Hollywood.
“Aloha Wanderwell: Call To Adventure” is a remarkable tale told by a remarkable woman.
