Welcome to the world of Alexander Botts and Earthworm Tractors, a series of humorous short stories about a bumbling salesman’s trials and tribulations selling crawler tractors. His unusual sales tactics send the machines through impervious swamps, murky lakes, and high snowbanks. His schemes consistently backfire, but, in the end, he never fails to close the deal! In this book, Botts talks his way into a job selling Earthworm Tractors for The Farmers’ Friend Tractor Company.

Alexander Botts was created in 1927 by author William Hazlett Upson, and these stories are based on Upson’s brief career as a mechanic for the Caterpillar Tractor Company. Botts was beloved by Saturday Evening Post readers for almost half a century in more than 100 short stories. This book is the first in a series and will be the only publication to present the entire collection, including five Botts stories that never appeared in the Saturday Evening Post.

Alexander Botts and his Earthworm Tractor will charm young and old readers and entertain them with innocent mayhem, timeless humor, and twists of fate.
