Michael O'Mara to publish Alex Bescoby's The Last Overland
Michael O’Mara Books has acquired the remarkable story of filmmaker Alex Bescoby’s epic journey recreating the iconic First Overland expedition made in 1955, tying in with a major four-part documentary series airing on All 4 in the UK this autumn. Embarking on the "mother of all road trips" in 2019, Alex's book recounts his defining trip of a lifetime, investigating how the world has changed since the First Overland, and exploring themes of family ties, postcolonialism and the Land Rover religion. 'The Last Overland' will be published in hardback on September 29th 2022. Senior Commissioning Editor Jo Stansall acquired World English Rights from Jo Cantello at Wolfsong Media.
