First Overland: London-Singapore by Land Rover- by Tim Slessor.
Another fantastic novel for all of you interested in the origins of overland vehicle travel.
They had no money. They had no cars. They had a whole lot of tenacity. These six men convinced a publisher, film maker and enough sponsors to make this historic trip a reality. In late 1955, they set off from England. Six months, six days and 18,000 miles later, two very weary Land Rovers rolled into Singapore to flash-bulbs and champagne. Now, fifty years on, their bestselling book, First Overland, is republished with an introduction by Sir David Attenborough.
