Overview

Between bear hunting, drag racing, doughnut spinning, cattle rustling, gold prospecting, and too many near-death experiences, it's amazing that Alex Debogorski ever found time (or lived long enough) to spend twenty-five years hauling freight over frozen lakes to the most remote outposts in the arctic. In King of the Road, Alex jams his storytelling into overdrive for a memoir that's equal parts actionpacked, outrageous, tender, and hilarious. You'll find out how he once caught fire in the middle of a brawl, how easy it is to get killed driving a coal truck, how the sound of cracking ice is something you can never get accustomed to hearing, and what it's like being the improbable star of a hit TV show. The true tales of this larger-than-life ice road trucker are not to be missed.
