Hollywood’s lady through Brisbane on world tour. Aloha Baker is a traveler, lecturer and writer. She speaks several languages and films her high adventures with a movie camera. Hollywood is the Bakers’ home, but they are more often out than in.
In 1922–when Baker was 14–she joined the expedition of a Polish adventurer whose name was so difficult to pronounce in English that he adopted “Wanderwell.” His mission was to drive a Model T Ford around the world. Only Baker stayed with him through the entire trip, which ended triumphantly in Detroit three years later.
She’s been a a prisoner of war in China. She’s camped in the path of a thirst-maddened horde of elephants. She’s driven through four days and nights of teeming Australian rain in a race with starvation. At the end of all this she arrives in Glasgow as calm, as poised, and as beautifully dressed as a fashion plate.
