Best known for founding international haulier, Trans UK, Bob Carter was involved in the ground-breaking changes occurring in British transport of the 60s and 70s. Beginning in the army, where he witnessed nuclear testing on Christmas Island in the 1950s, Carter went on to be a driver, office worker, and, finally, company owner. Never afraid to get his hands dirty, Bob was able to turn his hand to any aspect of his business operation, from repairing mechanical defects to operating forklifts, and driving his own trucks. In 1975, he set out on Trans UK's maiden run to Iran in his Humber Sceptre with four of his trucks in convoy-the first trip of many for the company. The denationalization of BRS and the implementation of the 'O' licence, the rapid growth of privately owned haulage companies, combined with the Middle East oil boom of the 70s, all helped Bob to develop a successful British and international transport operation. Including nearly 300 previously unpublished photos, You Call, We Haul is an inspirational story which will appeal to those with an interest in the heyday of Middle-East travel, and those with a general love of great British transport companies.

Meet Barry Ladd. He is a family physician who practiced medicine for thirty years in a small country town, forty miles south of a major city. He calls it "Our Town," because the residents, including himself, so personally identified with the community. In the thirty years that Ladd practiced in "Our Town," he delivered fifteen hundred babies and had one hundred and eighty thousand office visits. He delivered the babies of the babies, and took care of four generations in the same family. During that time, there was an explosion of technology and scientific information. The practice of medicine shifted from being more of an art to being more of a science. During this time, Ladd was a participant and observer. He saw how personal events and decisions played out over time. He tells his readers what he saw, heard, and felt. These are all true stories. Some are composites of several people. The names have been changed.
