The biography of a Czechoslovakian who succeeded in three different worlds,—Prague and a childhood of destitution, gave Jan Rieger a start in life that led to the unlikely advance during World War I to officer rating in the Austro-Hungarian Imperial Army. Next—with the newly won freedom of his country after the Armistice, Jan became head of a successful crystal and porcelain industry. Finally—when the war broke out, he stayed to build a third life as a chicken farmer in Pennsylvania, until he volunteered for the Canadian Army. Portrait of a chameleon, a man of determination and ability, reflecting in his own life, the changing patterns of world history.—Kirkus Review.
Awarded 1944 Governor General's Literary Award. [Suggest a different description.]
