‘Home seems impossibly far away as we step out onto a rough base of ice and snow. The temperature is -25°C. This is considered warm . . .’

Michael Palin’s journey from North to South Pole sees him tackling Arctic ice floes, scaling Sudanese sand dunes and white-water rafting on the Zambezi. Pole to Pole chronicles this awe-inspiring overland adventure by train, truck, bike and Ski-Doo as Michael races against time to finally stand in Scott’s shoes in the Land of the Midnight Sun.


Coupled with his eye for detail, he has the diarist's willingness to try anything and to laugh at himself ... travel-writing of unpretentious charm and enjoyable originality
A glorious travel book. There's never a dull moment, either, in the stunning photography or the entertaining travel notes
Daily Mail
Brisk, fresh and makes you want to go where he has gone

Palin is the Python we all want to go abroad with
