As roads improved, many of these companies became large operations with ample semi-trucks, trailers and places to haul. This book is a concise history of the pioneers in trucking and how they grew their truck empires. From the east coast to the west coast, most of the companies started out very small regionally and with acquisitions and mergers became the big names in trucking hauling all over America. Each company includes a history, maps of their truck lines and a photo or more of their fleet or rigs they used at an epochal point in their history.

Ron Adams has been collecting truck literature and photographing trucks for over 40 years and has a vast knowledge of the trucking industry and has made a name for himself in truck books.
