Book Description

Fischer on Tour

No chess player has received the worldwide recognition that Bobby Fischer has. His match for the World Championship with Boris Spassky in 1972 made Fischer a global figure. Silent for twenty years, he returned to the limelight with his return match against Spassky in Sveti Steflan. Today Fischer is again in the news as he faces the possibility of going to prison.

A Legend on the Road deals with Bobby before he had become a household name. A complete unknown he wasn't, not with six U.S. Championships to his credit - including a scintillating 11-0 in the 1963/64 affair - but U.S. chess players bad never had a real opportunity to see him in action without traveling thousands of miles.

Their one chance to see Bobby up close was Fischer's 1964 exhibition tour. Following in the footsteps of such legends as Capablanca and Alekhine, Bobby barnstormed the U.S. and Canada from coast to coast. His entertaining lectures, high level of play and personable manner won many new admirers.

A Legend on the Road gives a comprehensive look at the tour with newspaper reports, magazine articles, personal reminiscences and tons of games, many of which have never been published before. This second edition features new material including a recently rediscovered exhibition in Indianapolis, first hand accounts from the San Francisco, Little Rock and Pittsburgh, several games, plus photos, artifacts as well as corrections. This book is a treasure trove for every Fischer Fan.
