About this title
A book to reflect – and implement – the new millennium spirit of adventure. The capability of competently driven 4x4s and the availability of satellite-sourced communications, navigation, images and emergency beacons dramatically widen the scope for modern voyages of discovery.
Detailed and very thorough in its approach to every conceivable aspect of vehicle-based expeditions, the book in its first edition won praise from armchair media critics but, far more importantly, accolades from actual users – the Amazon five-star reader reviews tell it all. Signposting within the book ensures easy access to just the information required. Headings, tables, line drawings and page side-note summaries together with copious photography give the overview when needed.
Clothing, equipment, and vehicles are covered; plus water filtration, shipping, fuels and oils, communications and comprehensive coverage of maps, navigation and driving.
READERSHIP: A book for the outdoor and adventure-oriented, 4x4 owners – private and professional – enthusiasts, university expedition groups, aid agencies, youth organisations, expatriates, military.
An expedition can be a half day exploring a hill track, two weeks off-road in Turkey or the Pyrenees, or a major journey in Africa, but the demands are similar. Sheppard offers advice on planning, communications, equipment and navigation.
