Lifestyle journalist Nick Hammond takes readers on a quarter-century expedition of wonder. From the bamboo forests of Japan to the peat burns of the Scottish Hebrides; from the dripping rainforest of Borneo to the scorched savannah of Africa; Around The World In 80 Cigars follows a natural observer through weird and wonderful adventures, each linked by the golden thread of a fine cigar. Ever been stuck in a minefield? Wondered what a sultry night in Havana is really all about? Wished you could sail in a hot air balloon over Cognac, go lobster fishing off Scotland, or dive with great white sharks off Gaansbai? All these adventures and more are told in searing detail in this beautifully packaged memoir.
