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."
