"A popular question amongst Land Rovering overlanders, regardless of vehicle model, is how do you kit out the vehicle, especially the interior.  Most agree that an expedition or overland vehicle is never 'finished', and usually a trip causes suggestions of its own when you get home.  ...  A new book from TeriAnn Wakeman, author of the excellent "Essential Guide to Overland Travel in the United States and Canada" gives a thoughtful approach to this topic, and by-the-by this book "A Girl and Her Land Rover" is also a great read about the restoration and overland use of her 1960 Series Two Dormobile.  Thoroughly illustrated with photographs throughout, it is both a primer for equipping an overland truck (and living in it!) and also a practical and useful account of Land Rover (and Dormobile) restoration and rehabilitation.  There is much in the book that will make Series, and indeed, Defender owners smile wryly!  ...   Well worth the read!"

Land Rover Owner magazine


"A Girl and Her Land Rover An Auto-Biography details how she went about learning how to fix her 'auto' and gradually altering is layout to suit her changing lifestyle. ... Starting out as a young woman with a passion for travel and a rusty Land Rover she learns on the job with help from a local Land Rover mechanic Jim 'Scotty' Howet who took her under his wing and guided her through the process of restoration and rebuilding. ... Her book is written in an easy style and chronicles many of the skinned knuckle moments familiar to all of us."

Classic Land Rover magazine


"The 124 page softback picks up in 1978 when she found her 1960 pickup in a rather sorry state under some trees and purchased it for the princely sum of $350. TeriAnn recounts her personal experiences returning the neglected derelict back into a reliable workhorse and eventually into an outstanding beast. ...  although others have outfitted their Land Rovers as she has, with everything, including the kitchen sink, few have done it all themselves, and almost no one has been doing it for as long as she has.  ...  inspires on many levels.  TeriAnn's commitment to one vehicle for so long is a testament to the bond between her and her Land Rover.  Her lust for the open road is an inspiration for anyone who yearns to be truly free."
