Om boka

After his retirement, Henry Johnson drives the back roads of America and
stirs up benign mischief along the way-all in the attempt to help an
unsuspecting stranger in need of a fresh deal from life's deck-of-cards. With
his truck, Maggie, full of essentials and not-so-essentials, Henry stops in the
podunk town of Karchner, Nebraska, little more than a bend in Highway 26. While
eating breakfast at Nelda's Cafe, he jests with its spit-and-vinegar
proprietor, Mabel, and obtains the name of a family who might need his help. In
fact, Titus and Beatrice Smithing are just the sort of people he's been
hankering to meet. Henry trundles out to the Smithing spread and finds the
ornery, down-on-his-luck black rancher less than receptive. With his "whatever"
charm, Henry entrenches himself in the Smithings' lives, shares their sorrows
and fears, earns their friendship, and transforms their future with humor and
hard work. The Cottonwoods of Titus Smithing is an uplifting, crusty, literary
tale bound to cause knee-slapping and eye-dabbing!
