It’s 1936, and Tobias Henry is stuck in the frozen hinterlands of Michigan. Tobias is obsessed with two things: God and girls. Mostly girls, of course. But being a Baptist preacher’s son, he can’t escape God. When his father is blinded in a bizarre accident (involving hard cider and bird droppings), Tobias must ride the rails to Texas to recover a long-hidden stash of money. Along the way, he’s initiated into the hobo brotherhood by Craw, a ribald vagabond-philosopher. Obstacles arise in the form of a saucy prostitute, a flaming boxcar, and a man-eating catfish. But when he meets Sarah, a tough farm girl under a dark curse, he finds out that the greatest challenge of all is love.

One belly laugh after another. The story was well told, characters totally likeable. Absolutely hilarious, well worth the price, I can't recommend it strongly enough.
hilarious, cussing, hilarious!

Too many to choose & I wouldn't want to spoil the story!
Craw...although I would want my hubby along just for...safety!
I THOROUGHLY enjoyed this book, but I would warn readers that the story's main character is a young man who is controlled by daydreams and hormones...and many of the other characters are hobos. The language is very strong, appropriate to the situation and characters. The story is "pee your pants funny"!
great story without being dirty, was interesting and I never got bored
when he caught the catfish
I haven't read the book.
Maybe a younger-voiced main character?
I didn't enjoy some of the characters voices. Craw sounded very stereotypical.
I didn't like the characters THAT much. Maybe the French lady?
