Crazy Journey

£16.99

Product description

Hardback, First edition, date unknown. Blue cloth covered boards with silver title on spine. Spine bumped and worn at extremities, as are covers. Dust jacket worn at edges with some small tears, stained at rear. Inscription on free endpaper. pages lightly tanned and slightly foxed at edges. Clean and tightly bound.

It was on February 17, 1953, that three adventurous Englishmen set forth on what they termed a "Crazy Journey" and together they made a formidable team. Alan Hess has, of course, done this sort of thing before, Ken Wharton needs no introduction as a trials and racing driver and Ron Jeavons is the efficient mechanic who previously accompanied the author on his trip round the world. It was their intention to drive an A40 Austin, an ordinary standard model, from the equator in tropical East Africa to Jokkmokk on the Arctic Circle, and they completed their journey, covering over 8,000 miles in 11 days, driving day and night. The many adventures that befell them and how they nearly lost their lives is told in this exciting book.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
