9780140176094: A Thousand Miles from Nowhere: Trucking Two Continents

Once upon a time even our goods and wares travelled romantically. Bales of tea, rolls of silk, jars of spices were dispersed across the oceans in East India Company schooners and clippers. But modern goods are now moved by trucks, with one man taking his truck, possibly all the way across Europe, alone, responsible for perhaps a quarter of a million pounds worth of goods. Across Eastern Europe, where customs regulations change every week, where on one run fuel might be short in Rumania or fighting have broken out in Yugoslavia. This book looks at the trucking experiences of the author.
