Around the World in 80 Daysby Michael Palin
Best known to Americans as the former star of Monty Python's Flying Circus, author and adventurer Michael Palin circumnavigates the globe following in the famous footsteps of Jules Verne's fictional hero Phileas Fogg. By camel, train, dog-sled, dhow, and container ship he races against the clock. Palin shares his adventures and misadventures - from a garbage-collecting gondola in Venice to his close shave in Bombay with snakes and mongoose - with humor and delight.
His boundless curiosity about people and places, his wry sense of humor and remarkable eye for local color, make Around the World in 80 Days a marvelous adventure story for everyone!
