The world of trucks is a world of eighteen wheelers, CB radio, endless days on the road and white line fever. Truckers are some of the last modern day heroes, the computer age cowboys. Yet, however much trucks have developed over the years, from simple chassis, with engine, controls and seat tacked on, to the luxurious technical masterpieces of today, the drivers have changed little. The long-distance trucker is still a pioneer spirit, a free-roaming individual with few friends as close as his Kenworth, White, 'Peter', Scania or Leyland. Here in The Pictorial History of Trucks, Eric Gibbins gives an erudite narrative on the technical development of the commercial vehicles which, since their early days, have got bigger, more powerful and faster, while Graeme Ewens traces the build-up of a whole sub-culture based on romantic but nonetheless factual imagery.
