I have been a follower of Michael Palin's adventures (Pole To Pole, Full Circle & Sahara). I have all of these on video and I have read them also. But this book is special as it is his first and hardest to get on video or DVD. When you read this you get the feeling that you are there with him. The way he explains every event and place he visits. If you are in to reading this a must read along with his other adventure books. Also, if you enjoy watching his adventures put you name in for the re-release of this on DVD as it is available in the UK but you can't watch it in Canada as it is a different DVD region. So give you email address an get it in to Canada. You won't be disappointed.
