Author Mark Warren has had a lifelong love affair with 4-wheel-drive vehicles, like the humble Land Rover Defender and Toyota Land Cruiser.

He likes them so much that he's written a book, called Many a Muddy Morning.

The book is Mr Warren’s incredible, sometimes irreverent, often hilarious story of his life. It’s a tale many New Zealanders will relate to. It’s about dreams and perseverance as a farmer, through challenging times, but always keeping an open mind.
