Personal Quote:

Quite frankly, I think political correctness is the worst form of censorship. You're not allowed to speak your mind unless you're black, or unless you're a terrorist, or unless you're an Arab or a minority people. Then you can say what you like. But if you are like a lot of us you are not supposed to say certain things. See more »

Trivia:

A bestselling author of adventure fiction, Smith became a full-time writer in 1964. Later, he would finance expeditions in Africa and Alaska. See more »
