Born into a highly educated and esteemed household, Thomas G. Davis was destined to accomplish great things.

In his fascinating memoir, Thomas shares his life's adventures from a schoolboy with a love of box turtles to undergraduate and postgraduate education, and all through his many travels worldwide. His career climbing through the ranks of Exxon led him and his wife to living on various corners of the globe and learning from all different cultures on the way. A life well lived, Thomas, while sharing humorous and thrilling anecdotes, also teaches the value of hard work and a keen mind.
