Pass the Butterworms

Author(s): Tim Cahill

Travel - Narratives

Once more, Tim Cahill, intrepid voyager to the most mind- boggling and extreme of locations, sets forth into the wild and wonderful. In Pass The Butterworms Cahill takes us to the steppes of Mongolia, where he spends weeks on horseback alongside the descendants of Genghis Khan and masters the "Mongolian death trot"; to the North Pole, where he goes for a pleasure dip in -36 degree water; to Irian Java New Guinea, where he spends a companionable evening with members of one of the last head-hunting tribes. Whether observing family values among the Stone Age Dani people, or sampling delicacies like sauteed sago beetle and premasticated manioc beer, Cahill is a fount of arcane information and a master of self- deprecating humour.
