Book Overview

In savage blizzards, blinding whiteouts and 60-below-zero temperatures, steel axles snap like twigs; brakes and steering wheels seize up; bare hands freeze when they touch metal. The lake ice cracks... This description may be from another edition of this product.

excellent book!

A very facsinating book based on the ice road. A documentary based upon this book was on TV and I had to buy it. It was enthralling.

AMAZING story.....

This is an amazing book.....I've read it, lent it out to friends, and finally had to chase it down and take it back because I wanted to read it again, in the midst of the "Ice Road Truckers" series. John Denison was one of the guys that "started it all" up there, building the ice roads. to think that he allowed a woman to come along and write about it just boggles the mind. To think she DID it just boggles the mind. We're talking the 70's here, pre-computer, pre-GPS, pre-cell phone. In this book, John Denison is ailing, but he actually lived to be 84 years old and was honored by the Canadian government for his efforts at the ice road building. A wonderful story. If you are an "Ice Road Trucker" fan, do not hesitate one bit, get this book. If you are just looking for an interesting book with historical perspective on the Far North, this is it. I highly recommend this book.

Wonderful book about an adventure job

I first learned about Ice Road Trucking watching a special on TV called "ICE ROAD TRUCKERS". The video was so fascinating that I had to get the book. The BOOK IS MUCH BETTER than any account I have seen on TV. The book gives accounts of individual incidents that add to the book's appeal. Edith Iglauer writes in a wonderful way that holds your attention while giving you enough factual detail. You NEVER have to think "What did she (the author) mean by that". I thoroughly enjoyed the book and have loaned it to friends. Those friends have enjoyed it as well.

The story of some amazing men

This book tells the story of an incredible journey through conditions you won't wish on your worst enemy. It includes their triumphs and failures. Great for anyone working in a boring job that wants to read about those whose jobs are a great adventure!
