Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Kiwi truckies are the unsung heroes of New Zealand - the men and women who make great personal sacrifice to keep our country running. The people who devote their life, in some way or another, to what is often a hard and lonely passion.

Life on the Road gathers together their fascinating stories.

It captures the humour, tragedy, action and extremes of the trucking world, moving between the dramatic, light-hearted and surprising - including runaway trucks, skirmishes with the law, nostalgic tales of the early pioneers, love stories, and more than one practical joke.

Whether you're a trucking die-hard or just love the wide open road and a cracking good yarn, Life on the Road is a gripping insight into the real lives of Kiwi truckies.
