Making the Range Rover Legend: The 197172 British Trans-Americas Expedition

In 1971, a British Army team undertook the challenge of driving the Pan-American Highway in its entirety from Alaska to Tierra Del Fuego at the tip of South America, a distance of 9,360 miles as the crow flies. This journey crosses the notorious Darien Gap, the approximately 200-mile-long missing link in the intercontinental highways length. It took almost 100 days of concerted effort for the expedition to drive, winch and float two Range Rovers through this trackless jungle terrain. This book looks at the region’s history and previous expeditions as well as the epic 197172 journey. Included are reminiscences from eight members of the expedition as well as previously unpublished photographs, decorative maps and commemorative postal covers.
