This was the fourth in Maurice Saunders extraordinarily successful series on Round Timber Haulage. Once again he produced a wonderful set of stories about the ‘giant’ characters of the timber transport industry.
To illustrate their stories he selected over 100 unique and mainly unpublished photographs of vehicles often giant in size and in the loads they carried, powered by steam, petrol or diesel.
Packed with pictures of Latils, Leylands, Fodens, E.R.F.’s, Matadors, and many others as well as forest machinery and military vehicles.
Maurice Sanders devoted much of his life to round timber haulage and allied pursuits, his many contacts in the business gave him access to a uniquely rich source of information and photographs on the topic. His books continue to fascinate and entertain timber and transport enthusiasts.
Other titles by Maurice Saunders include, Stories of Round Timber Haulage, Men, Mud and Machines, Characters of Wood, Wurlitzer and Wesley, Earth and Moving in War and Peace Volumes 1 & 2, all available from Japonica Press
