The real-life adventures of presenter Simon Reeve

In Journeys to Impossible Places, best-selling author and presenter Simon Reeve reveals the inside story of his most astonishing adventures and experiences, around the planet and close to home.

It continues the story Simon started in his bestseller Step by Step, which traced the first decades of his life from depressed and unemployed teenager through to his early TV programmes.

Not only is Simon good at manoeuvring in and out of precarious situations, but he is also deft at painting those moments on the page.

Not everyone can evoke such deep emotion and build tension so eloquently, but Reeve writes a richly detailed collection of anecdotes that make you mull over the eroding earth and humanity’s role in destroying even the most far reaching and seemingly ‘impossible’ areas of our planet.

Journeys to Impossible Places, by Simon Reeve, published by Hodder & Stoughton, £20.
