About the Book

“Big Wheels Rolling On” portrays many events that transpired over several decades in the author’s life, the majority as an adult. From funny things that happened to dangerous life threatening situations, the short stories contained in these pages center around real life interactions with key players that were a part of Paul’s life. A canoe trip that “went south” to a near death experience while trucking. While flying, a near miss with a flock of geese, to loneliness and fear in a serious blizzard to fighting a forest fire; it’s all here. Yet throughout his life, there is an abiding sense of happiness. Life has been good to Paul, and it shows up in “spades.” You will enjoy his sense of humor yet feel the depth of the challenges that faced him, which could be and often were just around the next corner.

About the Author

He spent his adult life in transportation. An interest in aviation captivated his thoughts as a teen, and upon high school graduation he soon acquired his private pilot license. Not satisfied, he pursued trucking and began driving over the road in semi-trucks. Was there something missing? Paul played his hand at driving inter-city bus for a few years. Yet something really was missing. He wanted to travel through every lower state in the Union and all Canadian Provinces as well. He would then return to driving semi-trucks coast to coast and to the gulf. Every In-terstate, every U.S. Highway, every major city from New York City to Los Angeles, from Miami to Minneapolis, and in Canada from Halifax to Vancouver, all was within his grasp. Nothing stopped him. Hardships and dangers awaited him over some four million miles. Spanning five decades, he accomplished and fulfilled his dreams.
