Who'd be mad enough to go travelling to some of the most isolated places in the world in a beaten-up old truck? Meet John 'Roothy' Rooth, Australia's best-known bush mechanic. In a country where a little trip is thousands of kilometres and a busy place means someone's been there before, you'll smell the dust, the rain and the diesel on every page. This is the story of one man's love for his country, his old Toyota called 'Milo' and some of the more incredible adventures they've shared. Out of Range takes you on seven of the most iconic four-wheel drive trips in Australia. With Roothy as your guide, you'll find sandy deserts to cross, snowy mountains to climb, crocodile swamps to plunge through and sun-drenched beaches to soak up. And if up one of those remote tracks you spot an old green truck and a bearded bunyip of a bloke banging out a busted bearing, pull over and say 'g'day'. You'll cop a big grin, and then he'll probably bite you for a beer...
