The Torrid Zone
Tales from the Torrid Zone - Travels in the Deep Tropics
New York: Knopf, 2007.
A lifetime's worth of stories, gleaned from Frater's travels to nearly all the eighty-eight countries that lie between the topics of Cancer and Capricorn.
From dining with the Queen of Tonga in a leper colony, to delivering a new Church bell to a remote Oceanian island, Frater cannot stay away from the steamy centre of the world.
