The Aqua Mustang: Detours into My Past
A Memoir by Fred Poole
Published 2015

After years as a self-styled world adventurer, journalist, pleasure-seeker and author, Fred Poole found it a matter of life or death that he confront his past. Not just times spent in foreign war zones but a journey into earlier and more profound danger in the deceptively WASPy world he came from. The Aqua Mustang is his story of this precarious if rewarding adventure.
