America has over four million miles of roads: concrete, asphalt, gravel, dirt. Jake Rivers (fictional source) has collected many interesting short stories as he’s driven a truck along these trails. Some he’s witnessed like “The Good Nude,” featuring Dee Kurzinski, a beautiful young woman who’s bored being on the road. Some tales Jake has heard about as a recent event such as “In the Pines”, which takes place on an icy highway in northern Wisconsin. “Beacon in the Wheatfield” goes back to the bootlegging days of the 1930’s. Enjoy these stories and nine others which are set across a broad spectrum of time and distance. Get in the cab with Jake and read about what he has discovered.
Jim Lazarus has been described as an interesting author who writes well and whose “vivid descriptions make the book come to life.” This book will entertain you and leave you wondering, “What else is on the road?”
