About Andrew St. Pierre White
Andrew St Pierre White is one of the world's best known 4×4 writers, commentators and adventure-travel film makers. He first made his mark in the 4×4 overland community in 1993 as the author of The Complete Guide to Four-Wheel Drive in Southern Africa. The first edition, together with his website, 4xForum (now 4xoverland), launched the 4×4 information industry in that country. Since then, he has written another 14, 4×4 Overland books, and one memoir--currently the Nr-1 bestseller in the travel section on Amazon. His reach is now worldwide via this website, 4xOverland.com. Visitors can download all his TV shows, training and amazing adventures in HD.
In a 37-year career as a broadcast professional, Andrew spent the early years editing hundreds of TV commercials, and winning prestigious international awards. He is now a highly-acclaimed adventure-travel filmmaker and has produced and presented some of the world's best loved overland travel films. They are especially sought after by 4×4 and motorcycle enthusiasts, as his programs mix the wonders of overland exploration with the grit of men, women and machines. His works includes six, 13-part series for TV, a host of 4×4 training programs and a batch of aviation documentaries broadcast by major networks. His YouTube channel currently has 4-million views per year.
Andrew regularly travels to the world’s biggest outdoor expos, where he shares his talents and ideas. In 2015, he will present seminars about professional travel filmmaking techniques for the non-professional filmmaker. Expos include Overland Expo in Arizona (May 15-17, 2015) and Abenteuer & Allrad in Bad Kissingen, Germany (June 4-7, 2015).

Tired of mortgage payments, thirty-something Andrew and Gwynn sold nearly everything they owned but their Siamese cat and escaped their humdrum nine-to-five existence for life in paradise—a tiny island accessible only by boat or air in one of the remotest spots on Earth: the Okavango Delta in Botswana.
Woefully inexperienced, they took control of a luxury game lodge that catered to the likes of French aristocrats, Hollywood directors, Mafia lawyers, and the captain of the England cricket team. Not forgetting the hippos who liked to crash cocktail hour.
Trouble soon followed as the reality of running a hotel on an island accessible only by boat or plane burst upon them. Andrew and Gwynn learn it's one thing for guests to wake up with gentle giraffes outside their windows, but it's quite another to keep them safe from poisonous snakes, temperamental elephants, and a hyena with a taste for plastic. All that was child's play compared to figuring out how to feed their guests when a 'quick run' to the grocery store required a plane, a bush pilot, and moderate risk to life, limb, and property.
By turns funny, touching, and suspenseful, Torn Trousers is a real modern fairytale about getting exactly what you wished for…and then having to live with it.
