There's nothing like the issue of evolution to get under the skin of academics. Even if their field of expertise is magic rather than biology. With the best and most interfering minds of Unseen University somehow left in charge at a critical evolutionary turning point, the Discworld’s last continent needs a saviour…
Who is this hero striding across the red desert? Sheep shearer, beer drinker, bush ranger, and someone who'll even eat a Meat Pie Floater when he's sober.

Still...no worries, eh?
Far and away
Far and away my favourite Rincewind story. I typically am not a big of him or his stories. I find him kind of tedious at times. But this story is somehow different. It feels like there is a lot more heart and I like how Indigenous beliefs were handled. It’s just quite good.
