Alastair Scott's epic five-year sojourn roughing it round the world was originally (and still is) published in three volumes. Wanderlust brings together a 'best' collection of his writings from this journey. He writes with deep insight and caustic humour; diverse, bizarre, beautiful and poignant impressions of our world and humanity in all its forms. This is a delight from start to finish.
Here is the sequel to Alastair Scott's highly acclaimed Scot Free, describing the next two years of his five-year odyssey, this time in Central and South America, Australia and New Zealand. He writes with the same infectious brio as in his first book, a photographer's eye enriching the writer's, seizing with delight upon the egregious and eccentric, the larger-than-life that turns out to be life.
Join the adventure as a group of colonists try to find the path to freedom under the thumb of an overreaching government. They face trial after trial as they find their way together, learning who to trust and who not to trust. Go from the dungeons of London to the new town of Savannah, across the coastal plains of Georgia and the Carolinas and down to the Florida Keys, in this fight for liberty!
