The reissue of a Simon Winchester classic
In 1985 Simon Winchester, struck by a sudden need to discover exactly what was left of the British Empire travelled 100,000 miles back and forth from Antarctica to the Caribbean to visit the far-flung islands that are all that remain of what once made Britain great. His adventures in these distant and forgotten ends of the earth make compelling and often funny reading.
With a new introduction and additional material in many of the chapters, this revised edition tells us what has happened while the author's been away.
