American trucks and the men who drive them are the subjects of this eye-opening book. Like explorers discovering a strange land, the author and photographer of THE LONG HAUL give fresh and exci-ting views of the worid of the long-distance trucker. Breathtaking pho-tos of magnificent machines domi-nate the book : rainbow-painted, chrome-plated 500-horsepower monsters with stereo, CB, luxurious padded interiors, and tufted slee-ping bunks. Trucks decorated with stripes, arrows, Indians, and even a spectacular view of Monument Val-ley. Trucks glamorous enough to tempt a trucker to "dive into debt for the next 10 years and mortgage his wife's smile". We also meet individual truckers, including a husband-and-wife team, and learn why the author likens the long-haul trucker to the cowboy of the Old West. This is a book to interest any truck enthusiast, anyone who deals with trucks, and any motorist who's ever wondered what it's like to bar-rel down the highway in command of a mighty eighteen wheeler. The Long Haul is illustrated with over 130 photographs, including many superb colour studies of trucks and truckers.
