Star of the South: The Corbitt Truck Company Story




From Bill Johnson, Executive Director, American Truck Historical Society: “Until now, no one has offered an in-depth review of the development of Corbitt trucks and how the Corbitt Company contributed to the trucking industry,
the history of North Carolina and the world at large. With this book
the Corbitt Preservation Association has filled that gap”.

From G. Templeton Blackburn, II, Henderson (NC) Daily Dispatch:
“…a readable, informative, and scholarly account of the most remarkable business located in Henderson during the 20th century…a real delight.”

From Pete Prunkl, Salisbury (NC) Post:
“…filled with fascinating stories that enliven Corbitt’s history.”

From Mark A. Pace, Oxford (NC) Ledger:
“…a wonderful book that tells an important story in a well-written, visually-pleasing, properly-researched way.”

From Jim Donnelly, Senior Editor, Hemming’s Motor News:


From Lee Young, Wheels of Time, the magazine of the American Truck Historical Society:
“Highly recommended.”
