truck driver, he often felt like a cowboy riding the trails of the American West and
rolling into some honky-tonk little Western town, a truck stop, and a little kicking
up his heels and dancing while getting a little drunk and a little wild and crazy.

Circle Home West is an old-fashioned cowboy and Indian tale set in the New West. A contemporary Western novel, the book is the story of Clinton Anderson, a long-haul truck driver, the last of the American cowboys. Like the cowboys who saddled horses and followed the cattle trails of the Old West, the modern cowboy outfits his truck and rides the interstate highways of the New West. The radio serenades him with romantic song and fast talk, seducing him like a barroom whore in a Saturday-night saloon. Marianne, Clinton Anderson’s wife of fourteen years, believed that Clint’s truck had become his home and his mistress. On a cool Pacific Northwest autumn morning, after leaving his marital bed, Clint Anderson walked out of his small Puget Sound bungalow not knowing what lay ahead. To him, it was another workaday, mundane Monday morning. But fate would have it different. He would head out from Seattle on a routine long-haul run to Denver, only to find himself hijacked and deadheading headlong into the new Wild West!
