The book focuses on how and why Woodies were first used in the UK and then takes an in-depth look at the how the concept evolved from being a sporting vehicle into a utility vehicle – in essence the original SUV.

It also looks at the companies, both large and small, which built Woodies and the reasons why demand peaked in the immediate post-war years and then faded away.
