    Michael Palin has traveled around the world, exploring countless countries for the BBC. Now, Palin treks Brazil for the first time for a new BBC series, which went on the air in October 2012, and discovers the incredible diversity of this nation, one of four new global superpowers. From the Venezuelan border and the forests of the Lost World to the headwaters of the Xingu, Palin encounters a diverse group of people, including the indigenous hunter-gatherers of the interior, the descendants of African slaves with their vibrant culture of rituals, festivals, and music, a large community of German descent who celebrate their patrimony at the biggest beer festival outside Munich, and the wealthy guachas of the Pantanal. His journey ends at the border with Uruguay and the spectacular Iguacu Falls. A potent mix of races, religions, and cultures, of unexplored wildernesses and bustling modern cities, Brazil comes to life through Palin's eyes, and readers looking for an escape will be unable to resist this beautiful and informative look at one of the most interesting and dynamic countries in the world.

    From the beaches of Rio de Janeiro to the bustling metropolis of Sao Paulo, Michael Palin explores the diverse country of Brazil in this new book featuring gorgeous color photos throughout
