Oversize Images of Heavy Western Trucking, Volume 2
This is Mark's second book on oversized loads. After reading Oversize Volume 1, I was eagerly looking forward to Volume 2. I must say I was not disappointed. In fact I was pleasantly surprised that the quality of the book and the pictures was much better even than Volume 1. I believe that the better quality was due to the fact that the book was printed in the US instead of overseas.
Here are the chapters in Oversize Volume 2:
I was very impressed with the first chapter where Mark features shows images of the Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge being built. In January 2011 I traveled over this bridge and while you are on US93 and crossing the bridge you don't realize what all went into the building of this wonder of wonders. Even viewing the Dam Bypass Bridge from Hoover Dam, which looks impressive, you have no idea the hours of work went into building the bridge. Mark has captured the work very well in this first chapter.
The images of the loads being hauled to the construction site only shows us a fraction of the materials that went into the bridge and the many different companies from all over the US participated in this massive project. Well done Mark!
The subsequent chapters show the detail that Mark puts into his books. Not only pictures of the trucks, but also details about each picture. Mark documents the engines as well as great ratios that power all trucks in the images in Oversize Volume 2.
I really like the variety of the trucks, trailers and loads. Mark really captures the feeling of being there when the pictures were taken. Mark gets to the locations where most of us could never get to. So as you go through this book you are in awe as you see the images that Mark has captured.
Oversize Volume 2 is available in many locations online. To purchase your copy of Oversize Volume 2 before the book is sold out, visit the Buffalo Road Imports web site (see below) or write to them directly.
