Freewheeling Homes

  • Comment

David Pearson, Gaia Books, 2002, hardback, 112pp, £10.99 (£8.99 on www. amazon. co. uk)

The author celebrates the creativity and ingenuity of what is called, in this book, 'wheeled home enthusiasts'.What might have been thought of as a caravaners'guide to architecture is in fact an interesting photographic journey of eccentric travellers; displaying vehicles from hand-painted Romany caravans to one-off customised carts.

The common themes of the stories in this book - varying from tales of travelling in a classic American Airstream, (the 'silver bullet') or of a blacksmith journeying around America - are summed up in the belief that these modes of transport are allegedly promoting 'a way of life that is more environmentally sustainable, being less polluting and consuming fewer resources than the average modern home'. The pictures are nice, though.
