ALEXANDER BOTTS AND THE EARTHWORM TRACTOR: BOTTS ABROAD
Author: William Hazlett Upson
The world’s best tractor salesman is back in this second installment of Alexander Botts and the Earthworm Tractor. In this series of humorous short stories, Botts and his new bride travel to Europe on a special assignment to bring solid, American-made machines to the Old World! Nicknamed “Gadget” because of her usefulness, Mrs. Botts proves to be as resourceful as her husband in cleverly closing deals in ancient cities previously thought to have no market for crawler tractors.
Alexander Botts was created in 1927 by author William Hazlett Upson, and the stories are based on Upson’s work as a factory assembler and sales demonstrator for the Caterpillar Tractor Company. Botts was beloved by the Saturday Evening Post readers for almost half a century in more than 100 short stories. This book includes the original illustrations that appeared with the stories in the Saturday Evening Post and are part of a series that will be the first to present the entire collection.
Alexander Botts and his Earthworm Tractor will charm readers young and old and entertain them with innocent mayhem, timeless humor, and twists of fate.
