an-tr0078Trucker King (complete set of three vols. of the “San Antonio” Series of Trucker King)

Falling loosely within the genre of Western Adventure, the Trucker King serial novels of the 1980s and 1990s follow the adventures of trucker Rocky Robson and friend T.O. Bucker with their truck (nicknamed “Buffalo”) against a background of intrigues within a large shipping company run by Robson’s former father-in-law Henry B. Rockford. Totes-Fiesta in San Antonio, along with Durchbruch nach San Antonio, and San Antonio Story, form a “San Antonio” triad within the German-language Trucker King franchise.
