Подробно:

At seven years old, Bob Dollar was left on his uncle Tarn's doorstep with nothing more than a promise that his parents would send for him. But as Bob grows into a man above his doting-but-poor uncle's junk shop, news never arrives. With a thirst for knowledge, the now-grown Bob takes on the job of hog site scout for-Global Pork Rind, sending him through the prairies and big cities of the American South. But some folks in the Texas panhandle don't like hog farms. With a fictitious cover and the advice to wear cowboy boots to assuage the locals, Bob must contend with the tough men and women dead set against hog farming and outsiders, including ancient Freda Beautyrooms, who controls a ranch he covets, and Ace Crouch, the windmiller who defies the hog farms. As Bob settles in at La Von Fronk's bunkhouse and lends a hand at Cy Frease's Old Dog Cafe, he finds himself forced to question everything. Формат: 13 см x 20 см.
