Following hot on the heels of the publication of the Number One Sunday Times bestseller Labrador, Ben Fogle turns his attention to that icon of Britishness, the Land Rover Defender.

 To understand our national love affair Ben has travelled the length of the British Isles in an old Series 1 Land Rover, spending time with Defender enthusiast Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the Royal Marines and the Dartmoor search and rescue teams. His journey continues via the Bristol dockyard where thousands of Defenders are dispatched around the world and onto the Western Isles of Scotland and Islay, the island used as a testing ground by Spencer Wilks in 1947 to put several of the early Series Land Rover prototypes through their paces.
