Billy Connolly heads off on another epic American adventure - an 8,000 mile rail journey through 28 states to the four corners of the country.
In recent years, Billy Connolly has had more than his share of challenges - in 2013 he was diagnosed with prostate cancer (he's now been given the all-clear); on the same day he was diagnosed with the early stages of Parkinson's disease. But being a determined 72 year-old, Billy won't stop the illness put him off one more exploration of the country he knows and loves so well. BILLY CONNOLLY'S TRACKS ACROSS AMERICA ties in to another major ITV series, and tells the stories Billy hears along the way in his own inimitable style.
Beautifully illustrated with stunning images from the US throughout, BILLY CONNOLLY'S TRACKS ACROSS AMERICA will be a fantastic read for fans of the country, and the comedian, alike.
