About this book
Retired after 40 years in the trucking industry, McTavish knows the trucker’s life and better yet, he knows how to tell a story, a skill he puts to good use in his new book, Big Rig 2: More Comic Tales from a Long-Haul Trucker.
Join McTavish and his fellow haulers as they …
- hunt down and retrieve a stolen rig
- sweat bullets hauling burning boxcars and molten steel
- struggle through the chaos of snow-ridden Vancouver
- park a bulldozer in a living room to keep it warm
- slip, slide, and spin up and down icy inclines muddy trails
- reveal the secrets of a step-by-step haul
- pass on wisdom and warnings about the ins and outs of trucking
"... the more than two dozen stories are told with winning humour and a wonderful observant eye.... [Big Rig] should appeal to anyone who likes an honest working man’s story."
