The Long Haul: A Trucker's Tales of Life on the Road, by Finn Murphy

This first book is an entertaining look at the life of a trucker—specifically, a long-haul mover who preferred life on the road to finishing a liberal arts degree.  This is one of those books on a little-known sub-culture that you had no idea you’d find so interesting. “It seems strange that American letters has not produced a trucker-writer--until now. If you ever wonder about these American nomads, their lore, their lives crisscrossing this land, pick up this book.”--Ted Conover, author of Newjack
