Another one of Michael Palin's companion books to his documentaries, and filled with plenty of photography in its own right. Mr. Palin is an engaging fellow, whose curiousity makes him such a good travel host and writer, and this examination of a wide swath of Brazil's land, culture, and people is certainly eye opening.
