Summary

*With a foreword by Sir Peter Jackson*

Buckle up, grab a dram, and get ready for another unforgettable wild ride.

They're back! Stars of Outlander, Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish are no strangers to the rugged beauty of Scotland. But this time they're setting their sights on a new horizon: New Zealand.

Join our intrepid Scotsmen on their latest epic adventure across The Land of the Long White Cloud in this thrilling follow-up to Clanlands. Setting out to explore a country that Graham calls home, and that Sam has longed to visit, these sturdy friends immerse themselves in all that New Zealand has to offer: stunning landscapes, rich history, world-class food and drink, and - much to Graham's mounting anxiety and Sam's deep satisfaction - famously adrenaline-fuelled activities! As ever there's not nearly enough space in their trusty camper van and with plenty of good-natured competition and tormenting to go around, Sam and Graham's friendship is put to the test once again. Along the way we learn about the length and breadth of this jewel of the Southern Seas, exploring the fascinating story of its people while testing the very limits of Graham's sanity.

Like the very best buddy movie sequel, this latest instalment is full of unforgettable experiences and loveable characters and promises to be an even more memorable ride with two of the most entertaining travel companions around.

So, say goodbye to your inhibitions and kia ora to New Zealand like you've never seen it before.

banter theater on the kiwi roads

Two extreme talented storytellers who give you an intimate, lovely and each of them an extreme amusing version of their delightful, frightful, historical roadtrip. To listen to these two, is simply a great Joy!

Loved it!

A good romp through an adventure that has many laughs. Read in the beautiful voices of Sam and Graham. I could listen to Graham talk endlessly. What a joyous team and strong friendship.

An enjoyable listen.

To me this has been an intriguing mix of fascinating history and banter: entertainingly read by the writers.

Avoid

I had great hopes for this book. I come from a very Scottish part of New Zealand: born in Southland, brought up in Drummond and Invercargill, went to Otago University in Dunedin, surrounded by Scottish place names and culture. So, I was looking for some real insight to the Scottish immigration to NZ – especially Otago and Southland – the changes, influences etc, etc.
There were a (very) few interesting factoids – my rating of 2 stars is for that alone, the sole redeeming feature of this Audio book.
I didn’t finish it at 41% - it was just too appalling. Really tiresome frenemy banter from the two authors. Every time they tried a New Zealand accent – it was Australian (or something completely unidentifiable). Overdramatic narration that just sounded ridiculous. And very little about the Scots in NZ. It took 7 chapters before they made it to Dunedin – next chapter, they’d left for Milford Sound.
So, just an excuse for a holiday in NZ, with a book (maybe TV) deal attached. Almost everyone has done it better.
I would not recommend this book to anyone, and will be avoiding anything else by this pair.

So many references to 💩!!

Honestly guys, we're used to you behaving like big kids but you're losing me with all the toilet "humour". So unbelievably not funny or charming. Next 💩 reference and I'm out. Do better.
Disappointed 😞

What a great listen..

Who would read a book again when you have two great guys Sam and Graham read their own book with such enthusiasm. You get a far better idea of their relationship and quick wit. Loved it, even the embarrassing giggles I couldn’t stifle when shopping. Definitely recommend.

Loved it

It is such a Nice friendship the two scots have going, this was just more of the same and a little bit cringe toecurling at times. But I love their banter and friendship, and that they are letting me in on it.
