No Boundaries: new Travellers on the road No Boundaries

new Travellers on the road (outside of England)

Bibliography section from this book:


I get pestered for reference material all the time, so here are the bibliography section from No Boundaries. This isn’t meant to be comprehensive, so, apologies if your favourite bedtime reading is missing. On the Euro-World front, not much has been written about new Travellers or the counter culture. Diggers and Dreamers lists a number of world communes and communities. Publications like the Rough Guide and Lonely Planet guides are useful intros to other countries and their cultures. Michelin maps are as good as any for European Travellers. Mostly I’ve included modern stuff that you might still be able to get hold of.
