“Travels with Maurice: An Outrageous Adventure in Europe in 1968 tells the story of an average American man who traveled with the son of the richest man in the world at the time. Author Gary L. Orleck was a self-described “nobody” who drove almost 20,000 miles through 12 European countries in less than three months with his friend and companion Maurice. Along the way, they met kings and queens and partied with some of the most famous people in the world. Orleck experienced the power of what money and connections can do. As an example, when he wanted to call his father from France he was told it would take four to six hours for the call to go through. But Maurice intervened and within 30 seconds Orleck was talking to his father. The book is replete with many similar anecdotes.

“Travels with Maurice: An Outrageous Adventure in Europe in 1968 is a fascinating book. I was hooked from the first page, although I won’t say what happened, as that would spoil the introduction. Gary L. Orleck is a fine writer who tells tale after tale of incidents that might be hard to believe if not for the captivating detail with which he writes, along with his obvious nostalgia. As Orleck himself said, “no one could make this story up.” Readers will quickly fall under Orleck’s spell and develop great affection, and yes, envy, for him and his friend Maurice as they experience their incredible journey through Europe. I highly recommend this wonderful story to anyone.”
