One reviewer described “Bohemia Junction” as ‘Forty years of adventurous living condensed into one book.” It is all that and more! Aimé Tschiffely was the most famous equestrian traveler of the twentieth century because of his legendary 10,000 mile ride from Argentina to Washington DC in 1925. Readers won’t be surprised then to discover that exotic people, faraway places and equestrian adventure make up the background to the explorer’s autobiography. “Bohemia Junction” is packed with the amazing assortment of humanity that Tschiffely met during his lifetime of travel, including cowboys, prize-fighters, writers, Indians, and the eccentric riff-raff of three continents. From Cape Horn to New York, Tschiffely journeyed wherever his vagabond fancy took him. And each region explored had its quota of “bohemians” in the old sense of the word – men and women for whom love of adventure was a reality. “Bohemia Junction” delivers more than just an account of the famous equestrian traveler’s life. It gives the reader an exuberant drama, peopled by the reckless rough-necks of a now bygone age. No equestrian travel collection is complete without this timeless classic.

Tschiffely was a Swiss teaching English at a boarding school in Buenos Aires in 1925 when he got the idea of riding a horse to New York City. And he did it, becoming very famous in the process. It took him three years and he took two horses, both of whom survived the trip. That was the subject of his first book, a best seller at the time. This is a memoir of all the eccentric people he knew before and after his ride. He taught at a British boarding school before WW1 and would spend weekends and holidays in London, at a raffish cockney rooming house, he became a semi-pro boxer for a time, and met many unusual characters, all of whom are sympathetically described. After a boring year in the Swiss army during the war he moved to Argentina and once again met many eccentricos. After his ride made him famous he moved to London, where he reconnected with his cockney friends and also met literary and upper class people, including a prime minister. He was never awed by the great but treated all people, even the lowest, with respect, which seems to have always been mutual. He rarely talks about himself, but it would have been a very good thing to have had him as a friend. An unpretentious and charming book.
