Truck Stop

by Marc. F. Wise

Softcover, 96 pages, 65 full color photographs, 11" x 9"
Copyright 1995
University Press of Mississippi

From the back of the book:
This remarkable book presents a rare glimpse inside the world of long-haul truck drivers and truck stops - a world most of us view but never really see or understand. The photographs of Marc F. Wise capture the nuance and sweep of this singular culture - the truckers, the trucks, the truck stop cafes and lounges - as he found it in every region of the country.

In his fresh, insightful essay Bryan Di Salvatore describes the trucker's view of the world. With Wise's images and Di Salvatore's words, Truck Stop shows us not only how a truck driver's life looks but how it feels - the bone-wearying hard work and the loneliness of real people working and living in a world set apart, yet one that lies at the very core of the American way of life.
