:From darkest Africa to the darker and infinitely wetter birthplace of John Knox, from the remote expanse of the Alaska Highway to part of the Antipodes that even Bill Bryson could not reach, Terry Waite takes us on a guided world tour in the company of Dr. Robert Runcie. Even an archbishop has little control over wars and missed connections, floods and food poisoning, but this Primate sailed majestically through the most troubled of waters, as his companions baled energetically in his wake. Travels with a Primate is the hilarious and affectionate story of the trials and tribulations they encountered, and a delightful tribute to an enduring friendship.

Terry Waite (MBE, CBE) is a British Quaker, Anglican, humanitarian, and author. In the 1980s, he worked as the Archbishop of Canterbury's special envoy, travelling to the Middle East and negotiating the release of many hostages in Iran, Libya, and Lebanon. His first book, Taken on Trust, was written in his head when he was denied pen or paper during his captivity. He is also the author of Out of the Silence: Memories, poems, reflections, in which he recalls the highs and lows of his life, both during his ordeal as a hostage and in the happier years of humanitarian work that have followed.
