Archibald to sign copies of latest book

FORKS — Forks author Lonnie Archibald recently interviewed an Aberdeen trucker who knew every driver featured in his previous book, “Old Trucks and Gear Jammers.”

Camaraderie, Archibald discovered in the writing of his latest book, characterizes the relationships between truck drivers.

The man was one of 25 truck drivers Archibald interviewed in the Port Angeles, Sequim, Forks, Aberdeen and Quinault areas for “Keep on Truckin.’ ”

“They are one big family — these truckers are,” said Archibald, whose 210-page book hit store shelves Wednesday.

The books, ranging in price from $18 to $22, are sold in Forks, Joyce, Port Angeles and Sequim.
