The first to arrive is Ed Flannigan, who has one arm, no job, and not a clue about how to get on with his life. Somehow he winds up in Quartz Creek, Oregon, contending with New Age colonists, organic vegetables, and a cranky old farmer who gives him peculiar and good advice about growing peaches.
Meanwhile, Lloyd and Evelyn Decker leave home and hit the road in a powder blue Road Ranger to find their wayward children; Oliver the Dreamer, a soft-spoken amnesiac, finds a home and a family under a bridge in Seattle; and Webster Cummings, a statistical research analyst, survives a fall from a commuter plane to bring together these and other strange and wonderful characters for an unexpected revelation that alters all their lives.

"You'll Love the Americana"
Engaging, Witty, Smart
Like no other I have ever read
Tom Bodett paints vivd images with metaphor and weaves a tale like no other author. While his voice may seem somewhat monotone, it suits his material and style of writing so perfectly, it makes it feel familiar, like you are listening to an old friend tell the story, and leaves you believing you know the people in the stories.
Tom Bodett is one of the Great American Story Tellers. Don't miss this or any of his wonderful tales.
"Wonderful, as usual!"
The author is a wonderful narrator. He should have also read the chapter names. The style of those brief inserts was misplaced and not pleasant.
