Left Beyond the Horizon – A Land Rover Odyssey
HorizonsUnlimited description:

Amidst the Scottish Highlands, battered by the elements, stands a neglected Land Rover. It does not seem to be the ideal vehicle for a trip around the world, but Christopher Many believes otherwise. He has the dream of embarking on an odyssey to the frozen wastelands of Siberia, over to North and South America, and then across the continent of Africa – equipped with little more than a passport, credit card and full tank of petrol. His goal? “To explore strange new worlds and boldly go where no Land Rover has gone before.” Christopher returns from his journey through 100 countries eight years later – exhausted, snake-bitten and malaria-infected – but with a truck-load of cherished memories and a greater understanding of the world we live in. Equal parts sophisticated lexicon of global affairs and darkly witty travel chronicle, his book presents a vivid picture of the agonies and joys of world travel.
