Not yet rated | write a review
Since its publication in 1963, Sterling Hayden''s autobiography, Wanderer, has been surrounded by controversy. The author was at the peak of his earning power as a movie star when he suddenly quit. He walked out on Hollywood, walked out of a shattered marriage, defied the courts, broke as an outlaw, set sail with his four children in the schooner Wanderer--bound for the South Seas. His attempt to escape launched his autobiography. It is the candid, sometimes painfully revealing confession of a man who scrutinized his every self-defeat and self-betrayal in the unblinking light of conscience.

From Our Editors

Imagine packing up your family and everything you own, buying a schooner and setting sail for whatever adventures come your way. For some, the idea sounds maniacal, but for former Hollywood celebrity Sterling Hayden, it was a dream come true. In his 1963 autobiography, Wanderer, Hayden shares his seabound experiences with readers and provides an honest account of his bold move from the conventional world.

Editorial Reviews

Hayden''s wonderful autobiography Wanderer ...should be in every main salon aboard every boat. Hayden''s life can''t be emulated, but it is instructive
