Journey to the edge of the world : adventures in the Arctic wilderness

See all formats and editions

Billy tells us the gripping story of his adventures in some of the remotest parts of the world. In the summer of 2008 Billy Connolly set sail on a ten-week journey from ocean to ocean: from the Atlantic to the Pacific, by way of the North West Passage - a fabled route deep within the Arctic Circle that has thwarted explorers and fortune-hunters for centuries.

For Cook, Drake and countless other adventurers, the North West Passage was an alluring but impossible journey, a trial of unparallelled physical and mental strength, a haunting and fascinating wilderness.

Today the melting of the polar icecaps makes it accessible for the first time.

Billy's adventure embraces a memorable mix of bizarre encounters, Hemingway-esque characters, incredible wildlife, forgotten languages, big-game hunting and all-night carousing under the midnight sun.
