About the Book

They called him an old fox. He was one of the most experienced expatriates in Kenya, a specialist in nomad development, to whom the desert was his second home. They called him one of the best.

She had just arrived. As the wife of a young American diplomat she had to entertain the man and actively disliked him for everything he knew better.

And then the Great Rift exploded. Together they survived amidst earthquakes, landslides and red hot lava, to end up in the worst of all: A camp with more than seven thousand refugees. While they mourned the ones they lost, their love was as desperate as the situation they found themselves in. And then he made his biggest mistake ever.

Land Rover is a book about those who work at the grassroots of the international development scene, about emergency relief and about the Land Rover Series II, against the magnificent backdrop of Northern Kenya and its nomadic tribes.
