Pole to Pole with Michael Palin (on DVD)

Pole to Pole
by Michael Palin [DVD 910.4 Pol] 

Traveling from the North to South Pole, avoiding air travel when possible, Palin goes through 16 countries in 141 days: North Pole to Greenland, Norway, Finland, the USSR, Turkey, Egypt, Cape Town, then a flight to South America, traveling down to Punta Arenas and then to Antarctica where he reaches the South Pole. This is not the first or last trip of this caliber that Palin has been on, but that does not diminish its originality or excitement. Like his other adventures including Full Circle, Himalaya, Sahara and New Europe, I whole heartedly recommend it to a traveler or adventurer.

[If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try Around the World in 80 Days or Full Circle, also starring Michael Palin.] [Also available in traditional print format.]
