Detailed item info

Synopsis
A typical middle-class life rides on the back of truck drivers criss-crossing and zig-zagging between farms and ranches, refineries and bottling plants, warehouses and seaports all hours of the day and night. Take for example a jar of mayonnaise made in an Illinois factory: the soybeans for the vegetable oil come from Iowa; Ohio corn is shipped to Pennsylvania where it is distilled into vinegar; Minnesota beets get refined to sugar; salt is mined in Texas; lemons are picked in Florida; chickens lay eggs in Georgia; plastic for the containers is processed in China. Truck drivers deliver these products to the factory, accruing countless miles on the road, every unloaded trailer just the beginning of the next haul. Food, clothes, building materials, plastic impulse buys on display at the counter, everything in the room that youre sitting in right now, and each ingredient in the sandwich that you ate for lunch were delivered on multiple, separate trucks and probably traveled 1,000s of miles to get to you. Drawing on her many years experience writing for an industry trade publication, Mary Richardson and an ensemble of photographers document the stories of these truckers lives: ignored and mysterious, yet weaved inside every detail of our existence as consumers. Covering major trucking routes throughout North America, Truckers reveals the people behind the wheel and the places where they spend the majority of their time in the name of shuttling materials and collecting a paycheck.
