The Autobiography of Eyvind Earle

In response to 70-plus years of inquiries, pleading & collector interest, Eyvind consented to write this definitive autobiography in 1990. It includes the complete journal of his monumental cross-country bicycle trip in 1937; hence the title, “Horizon Bound on a Bicycle” illustrated with black & white reverse etchings, this volume is a must for the die-hard Earle fan!

I waited too long.
I could have asked my father, but it never
dawned on me that I would ever be writing
the story of my life until long after he left
this earth.
And my mother too. She left before I started writing
and at the end she was only barely still on this earth,
her memory almost completely gone.
So with no one to help me but myself
and the piles of letters and clippings that my
mother kept all her life, I’ll try to put
the beginning together the best I can.
And now, at the age of 74, I will try to tell
my story.
It is crowded with so many memories,
all intertwined, and so very many memories
fading away and almost forgotten.
At twenty-one I thought I knew far more
than I think I know today.
The more I wonder and ponder, the further away
the truth recedes.
Like mountain ranges that never stop,
no matter how many you keep climbing.
