Dust-jacket reads:


If you thought there would never be another journey like Around the World in 80 Days you and Michael Palin's family have a lot in common. However, less than three years after being shut out of the Reform Club, Palin was offered a journey that would be longer, harder, and more dangerous. He was immediately hooked. The result is Pole to Pole, the second of Michael Palin's Great Twentieth-Century Adventures. Setting out to travel from one end of the earth to the other, following the 30 degree east line of longitude, Palin and his team, using aircraft only as a last resort, endured extremes of heat and cold, as they crossed 17 countries on trains, trucks, ships, rafts, ski-doos, buses, barges, bicycles and balloons.

Arriving in Ethiopia at the end of a 30-year civil war, Zambia on the day of Kenneth Kaunda's downfall and witnessing the end of apartheid in South Africa and Communism in the USSR, they saw history in the making and made history as well.

Palm became the first British television presenter to throw himself, literally, into a Russian kissing dance in Novgorod, a mud bath in Odessa, white-water rapids on the Zambesi and a squash game at 100 degrees Fahrenheit in Khartoum. He became the first, but surely not the last, Sheffield Wednesday supporter to consult a witch doctor, the only member of the Monty Python team to try and buy a camel, the first person in his street to pan, successfully, for gold, and the only man with a cat called Albert to have stood on both Poles.

Lavishly illustrated with photographs.
