Until the dawning of the 20th century wagons of all sorts, shapes and sizes were mankind's main mode of travel. From donkey dray to ducal carriage, prairie schooner to farm cart, wagons assisted mankind with his labour or liberated him to explore the world. Sadly one of the victims of the internal combustion engine was the ancient art of wagon travel. Even in this day of GPS satellites and computerised cars, there are those who aspire instead to see the world glide by no faster than the trot of their gently pacing horse-drawn wagon. Yet had you longed to learn how to undertake a wagon journey, who could have taught you the everyday skills needed to travel across a host of countries and climates? You would have sought in vain for a guide to this lost knowledge - until now. This is the finest book ever penned about modern wagon travel, a volume which embodies a wealth of hard-earned experience and lore gained by David Grant. He is the legendary Scottish wagon-master who journeyed around the world with his family in a horse-drawn wagon, thereby gaining entry into The Guinness Book of World Records.
