“How to live the mobile, off-the-grid, adventure seeking lifestyle we all wish we could have.”
—Source Weekly (Bend, Oregon)

“Whether a life on the move is for you, or not, the tips offered by these nomads are valuable lessons to all of us struggling with clutter in the ever more confined spaces of our modern homes. . . . The people who live in these homes come from all walks of life.”
The Times (U.K.)
“Reddington looks at how a variety of freedom seekers have forged a new way of life for themselves. . . . Nomad offers inspiration for those looking to make their own off-the-grid-living dream a reality.”
Bristol Evening Post

“Reddington and Richards did a fair bit of wandering on their own for this book—nine road trips to six countries and 11 US states to find, interview and photograph people who come across not so much as running from something as embracing something else—a life less hectic, less cluttered and less destructively obsessed with online stuff. . . . This is a book that will get you thinking. The photographs are a joy, with skillful attention to light and composition. . . . The final sections of this chunky 318-page volume are devoted to giving the aspirant nomad a wealth of practical advice and go-to websites that are wells of information on getting your dream home on wheels, renovating it and sorting out those really important matters like loos and showers.”
—Irish Times
“Definitely one to curl up with. . . . [Nomad] whisks you off on a tour of 26 unconventional homes and introduces you to the people who reside in them, thanks to pithy, intriguing interviews by its author Emma Reddington accompanied by lush photography by Sian Richards.”
—Irish Examiner
