A Thousand Miles from Nowhere Summary


A Thousand Miles from Nowhere: Trucking Two Continents by Graham Coster

Once upon a time even our goods and wares travelled romantically. Bales of tea, rolls of silk, jars of spices were dispersed across the oceans in East India Company schooners and clippers. Many contemporary travel writers still retrace the traditional trade routes, but modern goods are moved by trucks. One man has to take a container on his truck, possibly all the way across Europe, alone, responsible for perhaps a quarter of a million pounds worth of goods. Across Eastern Europe, where customs regulations change every week, where on one run fuel might be short in Rumania or fighting have broken out in Yugoslavia. This travel book follows the author as he trucks his way across Europe and America.
