Overlanders Handbook 2017

I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is the first word, the last word, and
if there is such a thing, the middle word,
on overlanding. Buy it – you won’t regret it.

csolhWelcome to the new website for my Overlanders Handbook.
You can still buy the current hardback edition (left) for around £20, post free anywhere. To read more about me, click the picture.

The second edition of OLH will be out this summer. OLH2 will be a less expensive paperback with all the comprehensive detail updated and condensed to 500 pages, and featuring new AMH-style colour trip reports by overland adventurers from all around the world.
