The Golden Age of Hollywood was at its height in the 1930s and the world’s best tractor salesman was captivated by the glitz and glamour. In Botts Breaks Hollywood, the third installment of the Alexander Botts and the Earthworm Tractor series, the saga continues for our hero who, always ahead of his time, sees filmmaking as the future of tractor sales. In this collection of humorous short stories, Botts earns a promotion and is eager to share his enthusiasm for crawler tractors on the silver screen where his outrageous antics and blunders collide to capture the perfect shot!
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. For almost half a century, Botts was beloved by The Saturday Evening Post readers in more than 100 short stories. This book includes the original illustrations that appeared with the stories and is part of a series that will be the first to present the collection in its entirety.
