Through the novel Overland, you will experience Africa through the eyes of Paul DuPree, who, with his future wife at his side, quit his job to participate in an exciting, humor-filled 'overland' journey across Africa with some of the strangest fellow travelers you'll ever meet.
The wild animals? Dangerous. A canvas tent is the only thing separating you from some of Africa's most notorious beasts.
Life on the road? Rugged and rustic. You'd sell your soul for the taste of a cheeseburger.
And the break-neck speed of the South Africa to Kenya itinerary? Brutal. And be sure to bring more than one spare tire.
Paul's hypochondriac girlfriend, joining him on the trip, worries she's going to die from any number of mysterious tropical diseases. Black market deals, corruption and military convoy escorts aren't found in any guidebook he's ever read. And his tour companions, strangers from across the globe, drink, party and destroy their way from South Africa to Kenya.
The only thing keeping him going is the continent itself - rugged, mysterious, and beautiful, in a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants, dangerous sort of way. Would that be enough, or would his sanity depart him long before he reach the finish line in Nairobi?
Overland is your ticket to a pain and mosquito free hilarious journey through Africa.
