I can't put it down! I read it during my lunch, and when I come home from work. I am not a trucker, but have always thought about it. The text, and photos are just WONDERFUL! As a kid, my family drove from CA. to N.Y. many times, and over the years, I guess, I became partial to the Kenworth Truck. Anyways, THANKS very much to Documentary Books for producing such a wonderful, well researched, beautifully (!) photographed book.
A glossy history of Kenworth, thin on substance...

This book is a quick read, with lots of photos and large text. It's mildly enlightening for charting a history of trucking, the development of the West, and the chronology of Kenworth models. The book is seriously lacking in depth, and comes across as advertisement frequently. A perfect "driver's lounge" book for dealers, and, of course, for display in the Kenworth lobby.

It's a fascinating story that illustrates the actual development of the American West through the experiences of one manufacturer -- not your typical "corporate" history. A wide array of interesting photos compliments the very well-written text. Chapter 8 was particularly good.
