A very satisfying story for boys, as, for one exciting night, young Bill Bailey shares the adventurous life of the truck drivers who drive great loads of strangely assorted cargoes over the nation's highways. When Bill who is ten hears that cherries are going to rot on the trees because there are too many and the price has dropped too low, he suggests that some place they may need cherries- and the old truck could get them there. And so it comes about that Bill is allowed to go along with George- and share the rough and ready life of the road. Then they break down, in Lancaster -- and it all turns out for the best, when Bill makes his sales -- and new friends as well. An original story, with regional as well as occupational flavor.
