Publisher's Summary

Michael Palin journeys to a vast country of unimaginable contrasts - Brazil. An economic powerhouse, it is host to a staggering variety of peoples. He starts his journey in the north, in the remote mountains and forests on the border with Venezuela, and finishes in the south at the legendary Iguaçu Falls. He travels by river-boat, float-plane and foot to visit tribes deep in the jungle, samples life in the agricultural and mining heartland of Brazil, experiences the modernism of Brasília and the heady mix of Rio de Janeiro, and ventures into the favelas. He travels down the northeast coast with its African-inspired culture; to São Luís; Recife and Salvador, where Michael is swept up in Candomblé. He heads to São Paulo, where the super-rich commute by helicopter; tastes German beer served from a motorcycle sidecar, and tries his hand at being a cowboy before journey's end beneath one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world.

Want a modern look at Brazil?

Perfect for someone who wants a glimpse of modern day life in Brazil! I'm an educator who can use much of the factual details to share with my students. Gave me a wonderful picture of the whole country. Thanks!

I canot wait!

I finished this over the weekend and must say it is up there with 'Around the World' and ' Himalaya's' - Now I cant wait to see the TV version as MP struts his stuff around this vast continent. He captures just about everything, with his wonderful humour and accents, its really very, very good and I have no hesitation in recommending it to you guys! It is amazing that this country is so diverse with such a massive culture difference, but everyone rubs along together and makes it work! He covers just about everything that you want to know, from politics to football, economics and gay marches. Now the problem is, what will he will do next?...USA I suspect, now that would be fun, poking fun at them...cant wait again.

Brazil

Michael Palin is the king of narration. His warm and friendly style really draws the listener in and makes you wish you were there with him. The best thing is he is a Sheffield United fan, and of course Santos!
