Publisher's Summary

Inside one of the world's most dangerous jobs with the star of History's top-rated reality show, Ice Road Truckers.

The highest-rated reality show ever to hit the History channel, Ice Road Truckers follows the heart-pounding adventures of the tough-as-nails truckers who risk peril every day to deliver goods and supplies in Alaska and across Canada's frozen north. Alex shares tales of his adventures - and misadventures - in the north, and explains, in his own entertaining voice, how he got to where he is today: working class hero, bona-fide celebrity, and the improbable star of a smash-hit television show.

Alex is a natural storyteller who knows how to spin tales about his colorful life growing up in the backwoods. Whether he's recounting tales about his hair-raising confrontations with bears, calculating the strength of newly formed ice, divulging the secrets of providing security in a bar room full of combative, drunken miners, or saving the life of another trucker, he keeps you wanting more.

  • The first inside look at industry legend and fan favorite Alex Debogorski, a devout Christian, father of 11 children, and the world's best-known truck driver
  • Includes thrilling adventures and behind-the-scenes insights that you won't find on the show
  • Explains the facts about ice roads, from how they're made to when and why they splinter and break
  • King of the Road gives fans of Ice Road Truckers a deep look inside the life and times of the show's biggest rising star.

    Awesome Book.

    Great book, once I started I didn't want it to end. I'm a trucker and I loved it.

    Lots of Alex…Very Little Ice Roads

    This book shares a lot of interesting stories of Alex Debogorski’s life. Tough childhood, wild 20’s and 30’s, freewheeling antics, and good ole boy fun times. Overall it’s entertaining. But if you are looking for lots of Ice Road Truckers stories, behind the scenes events, and Alex’s views on the other drivers and the series production, you unfortunately won’t find much of that here (only about the last hour of the book). If you want to learn more about ice road trucking or the Ice Road Truckers TV series, like I did, you’ll probably need to look elsewhere.

    Truly awful

    This book has no redeeming qualities. It's poorly written and about low class behavior rather than the blurb info about the daring treks of truck drivers.

    Save your money. I wish I had.
