In this autobiography, Skaug, a native of Norway, recounts a lifetime of adventures that began with criss-crossing the globe solo as a child. It later included intense negotiations with the Teamsters Union in the United States and rebuilding a shipping company that had lost much of its senior management in a shocking airplane crash.
