Publisher's Summary

Wit, wisdom, and revelations from 60 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 21-year-old granddaughter - you know how that ends. Imagine the story traded from one driver to the next. Each time, a more outrageous yarn is spun. 

They say that only truck drivers experience the true grandeur and landscape of America. In A Trucker's Tale, Ed Miller gives an inside look at the allure of the work and the colorful characters who haul our goods on the open road. He shares what it was like to grow up in a trucking family, his experience as an equipment officer in Vietnam, and the trials and tribulations of life as a trucker. His tales are often funny, sometimes sad, cringeworthy, or unbelievable. Many are the results of what he calls "just plain stupidity." Together they paint a compelling portrait of a vibrant but little-known industry, and reveal why he just kept on truckin'.

Just A Fantastic Book For Any Trucker or Traveler!

My husband and I listened to this wonderful book written obviously by a driver, both military and civilian. Ed Miller was born at just the right time to cover all aspects of truck driving and the humor and experiences that come with it. We laughed out loud while we drove through the states and as owner/ operators we enjoyed this book to its fullest! This is not a "fluffy bunny" book filled with romantic tales but a true life story reflecting the language, life and loves that every truck driver has experienced. What a great book for anyone who is or wants to walk through the evolution or decades of trucking!

This is wonderful story !

I am a truck driver and loved it. I would have enjoyed it anyway, with his childhood, Vietnam and back to personal chapters of life stories.

Narrator voice relaxing but not boring.
