Novels by Tom Claffey
Searching for C.W. McCall
“Every industry, profession or trade has its icons, its legends. Right up there, near the top of trucking legends, is C.W. McCall. Searching for C.W. McCall reads like a trucker’s canon: do what you love, stand by your friends, and honor the rules of the road. Santiago Lopez and his faithful dog, Sloan, depart the family ranch in Pecos, New Mexico, in an old F-150 pickup to search for Santiago’s hero of more than thirty years, C.W. McCall. They soon find themselves welcomed by a convoy of 18-wheelers traversing the roads and highways of southern Colorado. The characters in the story are people you would like to know. Some, most notably Sally Tremaine and Dixie O’Donnell, whose handle is “Hoot ’N’ Holler,” appeared in Tom Claffey’s previous novel, Hoot ’N’ Holler, which won the Truck Writers of North America 2009 Bronze Communication Award for book of fiction. Do Santiago and Sloan find C.W. McCall? Read the story of their journey and find out!” — ABQ Press
