In 2015, Michael Smith set out on a remarkable mission and became the first person to fly solo around the world in an amphibious plane. This is the often funny, occasionally terrifying and always inspiring story of that trip, and how it came about.

With limited flying experience, no support team and only basic instruments in his tiny flying boat, the Southern Sun, Michael risked his life to make modern aviation history. His adventures include an unexpected greeting by Special Branch on his arrival in the UK, a near-death experience while leaving Greenland, and a wondrous journey up the Mississippi.

Showing a very Australian ingenuity and openness to experience, Michael worked his way around the globe. In seven months he made eighty stops in twenty-five countries, visiting many unusual places and, more often than not, encountering the kindness of strangers.

'Great Aussie spirit in a good old-fashioned, seat-of-the-pants adventure' -Dick Smith

'The blue-sky dreaming of Walter Mitty, the resourcefulness of Phileas Fogg and - dare I say it? - the over-confidence and geniality of Mr Toad in a flying machine. Surely these literary figures were the inspiration for such an adventure. A marvellous exploit and wonderfully told.' -A.J. Mackinnon, author The Unlikely Voyage of Jack de Crow

Michael Smith was named Australian Geographic's Adventurer of the Year in 2016. He is also one of Australia's last independent metropolitan cinema operators, after he restored and re-opened the beloved Sun Theatre in Yarraville, Melbourne.
