Pecked To Death By Ducks

Pecked To Death By Ducks


Tim Cahill sleeps with grizzly bears. He also treks with llamas, inches his way through the deepest cave in America, and assesses the cuteness quotient of giant clams in the South Pacific - all in the service of some of the most lively, nerve-wracking, and outrageous travel writing of our time.

From the wastes of Antarctica to the blazing oil fields of Kuwait, and from an evening of demonic possession in Bali to a session on Guatemala's Throne of Terror, PECKED TO DEATH BY DUCKS is a grand tour of the earth's remote, exotic, and dismal places, conducted with irresistible aplomb by a master of high (and low) adventure.


  • 'Tim Cahill is a good companion to quip with while you explore most of the continents, taking time out, as few of us rarely do, to get good and properly lost'
    New York Times Book Review
