See where the book began on KICKSTARTER

In an old dusty Georgian car market, my brother and I found ourselves negotiating over a beat up Mitsubishi Pajero with two decades worth of dents and scratches. It had a broken door, no air-con, and a quarter million kilometers to it's name. It was perfect, we knew it would take us exactly where we needed to go. Over the next three months, we would drive Caspar 11,942 kilometers, venturing deep into the forgotten lands of Karakalpakstan, traversing some of the world's highest roads in the Pamir Mountains, and crossing the largest inland body of water, the Caspian Sea (the namesake of our car).

For many (myself included), Central Asia is just a large area on the map full of places you're not sure how to pronounce. A century of Soviet occupation cast the region in a shroud of secrecy, which since the fall of the Iron Curtain, has scarcely been lifted. The surprising reality is that for much of human history, the region was considered the center of civilization, consisting of trade routes threading their way from Europe to China. OverlandThrough the Middle of the World, will take the reader on a visual journey across these almost forgotten lands. This large format coffee table book is an exploration of the culture, nature, and history of the people and places that range from Istanbul in Turkey, all the way through to the far reaches of Inner Kyrgyzstan.
