Wit, wisdom, and revelations from sixty years of life on the road.

Driving one highway after another at sunrise, winding through the mountainside, hearing the call to rise of the roosters, or simply exchanging "fishing stories" with the other guys at the truck stops. Like that one about the trucker who stopped along the highway and helped a little old lady who had a flat tire. By the time the trucker had told his tale a dozen times, the simple tire change story turned into one where an old lady was accompanied by her gorgeous, blond, and twenty-one-year-old granddaughter--you know how that ends. Imagine the story traded from one driver to the next, at the gas station or the rest stop, or the truck stop lunch counter over pancakes and hash browns or a slice of Edna's apple pie. Each time, a more outrageous yarn is spun.

Ed Miller was born into a trucking family and has spent sixty years in the industry. Most truckers are born into the industry. Even when parents advise against it, the hours are long and it means substantial time away from home, it's still hard to resist life on the road; they say that only truck drivers truly experience the true grandeur and landscape of America. In this colorful account, Ed shares the allure of the industry and captivating accounts of people he's met on the road. His accounts are sometimes sad, frequently funny, sometime cringeworthy or unbelievable, and some of the best are the results of what he calls, "just plain stupidity." Together they paint a compelling portrait of America and are Ed's attempt to explain why he just kept on truckin'.
