American trucks and the men who drive them are the subjects of this eye-opening book. Like explorers dis-covering a strange and wondrous land, the author and photographer of GREAT AMERICAN TRUCKS give us a fresh and exciting view of the world of the long-distance trucker. Breathtaking photos of magnificent machines dominate the book: rainbow-painted, chrome-plated, 500-horsepower monsters with stereo, CB, luxurious padded interiors, and tufted sleeping bunks. Trucks decorated with stripes, arrows, Indians, and even a spectacular view of Monument Valley. Trucks glamourous 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 owner or operator, anyone who deals with trucks, and any motorist who's ever wondered what it's like to barrel down the highway in command of a mighty eighteen wheeler.
