“Six personal journeys to some of the world’s most spectacular places

. writer and comedienne Sandi Toksvig follows the Zambezi from source to the Indian Ocean in planes, a Land Rover and her father’s old canoe

. Australian actor Ernie Dingo explores the remote red-dirt Aboriginal land of the Kimberley

. actor Tony Robinson seeks pure pleasure in rum, beach-massage and Caribbean Carnival

. percussionist Evelyn Glennie looks for the cultural soul of Korea in religiono and traditonal music-making

. six-month-pregnant actress Juliet Stevenson pursues her fascination with the Russian writer Isabelle Eberhardt through Morocco and into the Sahara

. in the foosteps of Cortes, Irish poet Damian Gorman reflects on the nature of conquest from the Mayan ruins to Mexico City.

The travellers all paint evocative pictures of faraway places, while also revealing much about their own preoccupations and passions. Based on a major BBC television series, the book is richly illustrated with Tom Owen Edmunds’s superb colour photographs.”
