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.

Publisher’s note – Second Edition
Following the sell-out of the first edition, the 2003 reprint – which eventually evolved itself into a fully revised Second Edition – was crowbarred into existence by persistent demand and sky-high second-hand prices on the internet (£150 offered for what had been a £30 book). Users also said of the full colour, gold-blocked hardback ‘Too nice to take on an expedition ..’ . We hope the new ‘Field Manual’ format – softback and monochrome – is appropriately butch and now suits the book to being used as a load-spreader under the jack or a suitable spot to rest your mug of tea! It also brings price and mailing costs down. Some things don’t change much – and haven’t – but the book has been revised throughout with major updates in the vital areas of communications, satellite-based navigation and emergencies. Also vehicles, modifications, fuel and oils, tyres – and there’s a good number of tweaks and giddyups elsewhere too.
