RUSS'S BUS    A reprint by the Motor Bus Society of Russ Byrd's original RUSS'S BUS which he published in 1945.  (Russ continued to drive 33 more years after writing this book.)  This book is a most interesting history of our bus industry from this driver's perspective.  He was hired off the streets of L. A. in 1927 to drive a sleeper coach from there to St. Louis.  Great tales of the hardships he, other drivers, and their passengers suffered in those early days.  Russ writes of the big bands he carried, the weather and the dirt roads, the military movements of W W II.  This reprint, although it has 2 pages reversed, actually has more pictures and cartoons than the original hard cover and a mid-70's update by Byrd himself.  Soft cover.     $10.00  

  ASK ABOUT.......

  I often have in stock copies of Jim Lehrer's latest bus related book, WHITE WIDOW.   This is Jim's story about a bus driver operating for a major company on a scheduled run in Texas in the 50's who lets both his desires and his dreamworld collide when a beautiful, young woman, the White Widow, starts riding his bus regularly.  A very dramatic piece of fiction.  Maybe a "there for the grace of God go I" book. These are 'good as new 'books, with dust jackets, discounted well off their selling price of $21.95.         $13.00

  Books are shipped book rate at a cost of $3.00 for the first book and $1.25 for each additional sent at the same time to the same address.
