Short story-form sketches form a gallery of trucks and the trucking industry from small farm jobbers to the big haulers and movers. Mr. Lent is known for other non- fiction (From Trees to Paper, Eight Hours to Solo etc.) for various age groups and seems to know his ropes in trucking too. He ends up his run with a play by play of the now well known ""roadeos"" where the ""Gentlemen of the Highway"" test their skills.
