The Long Haul: A Trucker's Tales of Life on the Road

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Finn Murphy

Narrated By: Danny Campbell

Duration: 8 hours 1 minutes

Summary:

More than thirty years ago, Finn Murphy dropped out of college to become a trucker. Since then he's covered hundreds of thousands of miles packing, loading, and hauling people's belongings all over America. Murphy whisks listeners down the I-95 Powerlane, across the Florida Everglades, in and out of the truck stops of the Midwest, and through the steep grades of the Rocky Mountains. He tells funny, poignant, and haunting stories of the people he moves: a hoarder in New Hampshire; a Virginia homeowner raging when Murphy's truck accidentally runs down a stand of trees; a widow rushing her archaeologist husband's remains and relics to a Navajo burial ceremony in New Mexico. Brimming with personality and great characters, The Long Haul explores the appeal of manual labor and shows what happens behind the scenes when we call the movers.

    The book brought back in vivid details of my time driving household trucks, met some great people and some not so great but loved every minute of it. He went into the details that everyone wonders about the movers and what they do. I totally enjoined it to the last sentence.

  • Sarah Bérubé

    Pretty entertaining and I loved this main character

  • David C.

    Really enjoyed this book a very well told story felt like I really could relate to the author, his career frustrations and challenges. I have very limited experience in trucking but I felt like I had a much better understanding of the industry and the challenges truckers face daily. The narrator was easy to listen to. I recommend this listen 100%!

    This was a good story written about the life of a moving truckers life on the road. It was a pretty honest rendition of his life as I recall hearings of the life from many people I have known. The book was well written and entertaining as well as very knowledgeable about the trade.

    The story was pretty interesting but it just wasnt what I expected.
