In his recently published memoir, Greg McCaffrey, career truck driver, reflects on his teenage adventures on and around horses as a working cowboy in Northern California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range and his time on the road moving rodeo horses and bulls to events around the country. It also talks of his eventual calling to put his skills to work as a firefighter and emergency services professional, and finding himself behind the wheel of a truck once again after his retirement.
“Behind the Chutes” is a fascinating and lighthearted autobiography featuring an insider’s unique perspective of ranching and trucking life in the Pacific Northwest.
Raised in a Northern California town, Greg was brought up with the spirit of ranching. He quickly learned how to ride and as soon as he entered high school, joined his local High School Rodeo Association which led him down an exciting path. After graduating from high school, Greg took up driving semi-trucks across America – proudly hauling livestock for rodeos everywhere.
Now retired, Greg is telling the stories of a life well-lived from a kid on a ranch to a cowboy, learning to drive a truck from his father and uncle, life behind the wheel of a big rig, and beyond! This long-time trucker is sharing his life along with some wisdom on how a person becomes who and what they are.
Published by Page Publishing, Greg McCaffrey’s engrossing book is the entertaining true story of a young cowboy-turned-trucker and his life behind the rodeo chutes and the semi wheel and is now available for purchase at bookstores everywhere.
