Staff Reviews

Not a mere autobiography of life on the road, this book delivers the meditations on the nature of transience, possession, growth, and values which paint a vivid picture of the country. Rather than a glorified image touted by nationalist pundits, it is one that explores class, race, and what the “American dream” truly represents. This book will show you that hard work pays off, not only in monetary means.

“This memoir of a life spent driving trucks full of strangers' personal belongings across the country is the book I didn't know I needed. Finn Murphy writes engaging slice-of-life stories about his time as a long-haul truck driver while also showing the changes in the trucking industry and American life in the decades he's spent pulling thousands of pounds up mountains, through storms, and across plains. Trucking is a solitary life, but Murphy grabbed me like a friend and took me with him on his journey.”
