Some people do their jobs in Arctic blizzards or fierce storms on the high seas. For some people, crawling through dark caves, climbing into sewers, searching through animal droppings, or even driving a car off a cliff is all in a day's work. Who does jobs like these, why do they do them, and how do they stay safe doing them? You'll find out in Dirty and Dangerous Jobs. Arctic truckers take on the most extreme truck driving in the world. They brave frigid temperatures and snowstorms on dark, lonely roads. At times, they must drive their heavy trucks over frozen lakes-and can hear the ice cracking underneath their wheels. The men and women who choose this job know it is risky, but they love the challenge. Book jacket.
