The actor shares his memories of childhood and career, from his difficulties as son of the world-renowned Shakespearean actor to his devotion to the practice of kung fu and Shaolin philosphy

Blackwell North Amer
Endless Highway provides a raucous ride down the road that has been David Carradine's life. The son of a world-renowned Shakespearean actor, Carradine's early years were spent being shuttled from mother to estranged father to relative to boarding school to reformatory. Spontaneity, quick-wittedness, and ingenuousness were his guideposts in life, and he quickly learned that creativity was survival. The fifties found him in San Francisco among the original members that spawned the Beat Generation, and his path through the drug-flooded sixties and seventies ultimately led him to "Kung Fu," the show that helped launch an Eastern spiritual philosophy into Western culture.
Writing with warmth, humor, and tremendous insight, Carradine provides an honest and in-depth look at his life. Had Holden Caulfield grown up, met Hunter S. Thompson, gone on the road with Jack Kerouac, and finally studied with Master Po - well, perhaps that would embrace the spirit of Carradine's own writing style. He has been, in his own words, fraud, genius, holy man, movie star, martyr, monster, fool, hero, whore, neurotic, poet, burnout, beauty, beast - but always a legend.
