Big Rigs is a fabulous photographic tribute to these venerable workhorses of the road--American semi trucks and trailers--from the past 100 years. "Big Rigs" provides a general introduction to the history of big rigs, with chapters devoted to all of the major makes of Class 8 diesel trucks: Mack, Peterbilt, Kenworth, Freightliner, International, Western Star, GMC, White, and more. You’ll find a short history of the maker, plus fabulous photos accompanied by extended captions describing model histories and backgrounds. In addition, period ads and brochures make this a complete and unique look at the history of American big rigs. Each chapter provides a short history of the maker and is packed with fabulous photos showing them in all their glory. These images are accompanied by captions that describe model histories and the backgrounds of these working trucks that ride our highways.
