In his greatest challenge yet, Simon Reeve, sets out on a global adventure circling the world around the Tropic of Capricorn. He encounters sumptuous landscapes, spectacular wildlife, strange rituals and desperate poverty. For the Tropic of Capricorn tracks the southern border of the Tropics, and is home to great deserts, paradise beaches and some of the wildest and most extraordinary parts of our planet. Motivated by a desire to learn more about the often forgotten parts of our globe, Reeve investigates the turbulent histories and wide-ranging tensions that shape the identity of these vastly disparate countries, all linked by one invisible line. From the impact of German colonialism in Namibia, diamond mining and civil war in Botswana to Nazi war criminals in mysterious Paraguay, and a controversial nuclear power station built on an earthquake fault line in Brazil, Simon sheds light on important issues that will eventually impact on the West if left neglected. He reveals parts of our planet little understood or even known about in the western world until now.
