Description

A Thousand Miles from Nowhere: Trucking Two Continents by Graham Coster. 'Visit the snows of Russia, the Arizona desert, and the industrial estates of Essex in the company of today's most resourceful travellers - the men who drive the big rigs. Graham Coster didn't have to invent the thousand-mile journeys he made across Europe and America. He just hitched a ride with truckers for whom North Dakota ice-storms, Greek jails and the essential art of ducking and diving are all in a day's work, and let them and their cargoes of gammon steaks, computers and Guinness haul him across continents to their unlikely destinations. What he witnessed was a road movie featuring Snickers bars for breakfast and too much country music; glinting chromium-plated Kenworths and Wanda the battered Scania; Earl the long hitter and Tony in his Silver Knight, modern nomads for whom the highway is home and any place you pull in is always A Thousand Miles from Nowhere.' The book has medium general wear with creasing of the covers and foxing on the early pages but overall a most readable book.
