The author

Graham Scott has experienced and written about many forms of transport, from 180mph motorbikes on the racetrack to Land Cruisers in the Sahara, from 130mph powerboats in the Mediterranean to a camel plod in the Gobi Desert. Despite traveling the planet, often to remote parts of every continent, he has never been anywhere where a Jeep (or a Seep) has not previously been. He has written numerous magazine features and books, including Essential Military Jeep.
