The Seven Year Hitch - a Family Odyssey, by David R. Grant

Of all the weird and wonderful ways to attempt to travel the world, the Grant family's journey by horse-drawn caravan must be the most extraordinary.  They had to cope with war in Yugoslavia, arrest in Mongolia, deportation from China, yet still they managed to make it back to Britain - seven years after they set off.  The family plodded ten thousand miles across fifteen countries in three continents and, in doing so, secured a place for themselves in the Guinness Book of Records.

The Seven Year Hitch is a well-honed and comical look at family life in the pressure cooker environment of a tiny living space and an inspirational tale of how fireside dreams can be turned into bracing reality.
