Billy Connolly, the world-famous comedian whose observational humour and story telling genius takes what’s mad and sad about the human condition and makes it hilarious, now adds author to his list of accomplishments.
Billy’s compelling new book is about his 2008 summer trek from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean by way of the fabled Northwest Passage. This journey has recently become possible due to the fact that arctic ice is melting at 36,000 square miles a year. What sixteenth century explorers tried and failed to do in their day, Connolly, ever appreciative of irony, accomplished.
This is a guide not only for travelers who wish to visit the sweeping Canadian northern frontier, but for fans of Connolly’s carousing storytelling. Encounter memorable characters and amazing wildlife facing a way of life melting under the midnight sun.
