Acclaimed travel writer Tim Cahill (A Wolverine is Eating My Leg, Pass the Butterworms) is joined by TWC chair Don George for an evening of readings and discussion in conjunction with the 2013 Travel Writers and Photographers Conference.
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 the 36-degree water; to Irian Jaya New Guinea, where he spends a companionable evening with members of one of the last head-hunting tribes.
Cahill is great! He is the P.J. O'Rourke of the outdoors! Fearless and hell-bent on overcoming all obstacles in his path, Cahill takes us to the oddest and scariest adventures nature has to offer.
