Uncommon CarriersLarge Print - 2006
This is a book about people who drive trucks, captain ships, pilot towboats, drive coal trains, and carry lobsters through the air: all the people who transport freight and bring us the stuff of our everyday lives. In recent years, New York Times bestselling author John McPhee has spent considerable time with these people. Uncommon Carriers is his sketchbook of them, their work, and his journeys in their company - in prose distinguished, as always, by the author's warm humor, keen insight, and rich sense of human character.
