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 descendents of Ghengis Khan and masters the 'Mongolian death trot'; to the North Pole, where he goes for a pleasure dip in 36-degree water; to Irian Jaya New Guinea, where he spends a companionable evening with members of one of the last head-hunting tribes. Whether observing family values among 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.
Tim Cahill is the author of seven books, including A Wolverine Is Eating My Leg, Jaguars Ripped My Flesh, Pecked to Death by Ducks, Pass the Butterworms and Hold the Enlightenment. He is an editor at large for Outside magazine, and his work appears in National Geographic Adventure, The New York Times Book Review, and other national publications. He lives in Montana.
