About this book
Brazil is one of the four new global superpowers with its vast natural resources and burgeoning industries. Half a continent in size and a potent mix of races, religions and cultures, of unexplored wildernesses and bustling modern cities, it is also one of the few countries Michael Palin has never fully travelled - until now.
Michael Palin's travels around the world have been highly popular, illuminating peoples, landscapes and cultures in his entertaining and engaging style. His latest journey, TV series and book, see him exploring Brazil, one of the 4 new global superpowers and host of the World Cup in 2014, and Olympics in 2016. It's an amazingly diverse and fascinating country, as he reveals.
