Journey to the Edge of the WorldLarge Print - 2010
From the Atlantic to the Pacific via the fabled Northwest Passage, Billy Connolly searches for the beauty of ordinariness and bumps into many weird and wonderful people along the way, from the fiddle-playing scarecrow-maker to the septuagenarian pioneer who still lives as her ancestors did. He learns how not to be intimate with bears and how to pan for gold. He herds cattle, attempts the finer complexities of the Inuit language, and kisses a cod.At this pivotal moment in history when this once isolated wilderness is about to be invaded by modern-day speculators, the inimitable Billy retraces the steps of romantics and nutters, those looking for love or just hoping to get rich. He leads us through this land¡s incredible past.
