About this book

Accompanying the major BBC series, this book charts Palin's latest adventure as he takes up one of the great challenges in travel: crossing the Sahara Desert. He traverses many countries which are hardly known in the West, with a huge and diverse range of cultures and landscapes. Along the way Palin finds there is no easy way to cross the Sahara by land and he encounters the same problems and difficulties faced by travellers for centuries. He comes to rely on the inhabitants of this unforgiving environment.
The DVD contains: Extra scenes with commentary by Michael Palin; Behind the scenes footage; and a 10 minute interview with Michael Palin.
