"I have only written about those moments that I consider most memorable." - Roald Dahl

Read all about Roald Dahl’s life before he became the world’s number one storyteller. Following on from Boy, Going Solo takes you on daring and dangerous adventures. The book begins with Road Dahl aboard the SS Mantola sailing from England to Africa, where his adventures really begin.  From tales of his wartime exploits and surviving a plane crash in the Libyan desert to surviving snake bites, Going Solo is an exciting adventure though Roald Dahl's early adult years.
