KIRKUS REVIEW

More short stories (SEP) in the saga of Alexander Botts, traveling representative of the Earthworm Tractor Company, again involved in a series of wild schemes, comedowns and upe which usually prove that two or more wrongs make a right. With violent viger, Bett goes against the authority of Henderson, his boss, and the law, when he tries to do business on a barter basis, retrieves a stolen tree, insists on making a salesman of Henderson's nephew and succeeds in reverse, rescues a shovel from a beaver dam, forg a check to angel a boat building enterprise, makes a donation of tractors to a college to get a degree and thereby put over a deal, straightens out the muffs of his salesman -- not mention his own, and ends up in the Army, still loyal to Earthworm. Miscarriages, misadventures, misdemeanours, which make for sometimes hilarious horseplay. For men largely.
