In 1975, Orvis CEO Perk Perkins and his then college roommate, Will Parish, hatched and executed a grand plan: to drive around the world in Will's beloved red Jeep. Over the next 20 months, Perk, Will, and their trusty Jeep crossed five oceans and seas, exploring 35 countries and covering enough roadmiles to circumnavigate the earth twice.
In addition to cementing their relationship as lifelong best friends, the trip also generated some 2,000 pages of journal entries, which make up the text of this remarkable volume. Illustrated by stunning fullcolor photographs taken by Perk, Will, and the people they encountered, this beautifully printed and bound adventure book belongs in the collection of everyone who has a yearning to explore, travel, and discover the richness our world has to offer. Travel adventure book is hardcover; 192 pages. Imported.

I originally bought the book out of curiosity because I know Will Parish and he is a very interesting person. What I found in "Around The World in a Jeep" are beautiful pictures and honest, entertaining descriptions of what must have been an unbelievable experience. The book has a permanent place on my coffee table! I recently purchased a second copy for a friend and am sure I will buy more as the holidays approach. It is a must read for anyone who has had a "dream trip", either real or imagined.
