Picking up from where ‘Only Fools and Horsepower’ left off, Nomads documents John’s trips to the Middle East as an international truck driver – one that threatens his very freedom.

“The Middle East is often a talking point amongst drivers. The run to the Middle East has always been something of a Holy Grail in the transport business, a place where some have been, where others claim to have been and where many more would like to go. It’s unique in truck driving for many reasons and carries it’s own aura and mystique about it. It fascinated me for years and is the reason I went out of my way to get involved.”
Picking up from where ‘Only Fools and Horsepower’ left off, Nomads documents John’s first trip to the Middle East as an international truck driver and subsequent journeys beyond.
Set at the close of the Gulf War, driving in the Middle East presents a new set of challenges as well as familiar bureaucratic frustrations. Travelling through expansive desert, war torn countries and even taking a wrong turn onto the “Highway of Death” – John recounts his experiences in his typical light-hearted and amusing way.
Nomads is the conclusion to John’s memoirs and culminates in a tension filled ending when he takes on a trip shrouded in mystery that threatens his very freedom.
