"It is a classic American autobiography, superbly written, which evokes poignant memories of the American dream."--William Manchester


"The book is an excellent sketch of the war's progress, and a thoughtful personal record of Mr. Sevareid's adventures--one of the most far ranging war correspondent journals yet published."-- Library Journal


"It was--and is--a beautifully written, idealistically inclined book that captured the youthful dreams of America and the postwar world. . . . What was once read as a personal story can now be seen as a part of our history."--New York Times


"It is a classic American autobiography, superbly written, which evokes poignant memories of the American dream."--William Manchester


"For anyone even remotely interested in American literature and journalism, Not So Wild a Dream is a must-read, and a joy."--Dan Rather


It remains an important book with a new kind of timeliness. Not So Wild a Dream can stand on its own as an intelligent, eloquent accounting of a generation that had to survive the Depression and World War II in order to reach maturity--and then took a long, deep breath because the worst simply had to be behind."--Time
