Jack Catcher''s parents are dead--his mom died of sickness and his dad of a broken heart--and he has to get out of Oklahoma, where dust storms have killed everything green, hopeful, or alive. When former classmate Jane and her little brother Tony show up in his yard with plans to steal a dead neighbor''s car and make a break for Texas, Jack doesn''t need much convincing. But a run-in with one of the era''s most notorious gangsters puts a crimp in Jane''s plan, and soon the three kids are hitching the rails among hoboes, gangsters, and con men, racing to warn a carnival wrestler turned bank robber of the danger he faces and, in the process, find a new home for themselves. This road trip adventure from the legendary Joe R. Lansdale is a thrilling and colorful ride through Depression-era America.

Author Bio
Joe R. Lansdale
Dividing his fictional output between westerns, mysteries, and exceptionally graphic horror (and often a combination of some or all of them), Joe R. Lansdale is devotee of what he calls Mojo storytelling--which seems to mean the ability to translate the subversion of expectations and being born in Texas into a fictional format. His first novel, ACT OF LOVE (1981), was a thriller, but its graphic intensity immediately set it apart from conventional thrillers. His next novels--THE NIGHTRUNNERS (1983), another thriller, TEXAS NIGHT RIDERS (1983), a western, and DEAD IN THE WEST (1986), a horror/western hybrid--were interspersed with numerous short stories. THE DRIVE-IN (1988) was a gruesome homage to horror, science fiction, and the bygone American pastime of the drive-in theater. In 1990, Lansdale wrote a mystery, SAVAGE SEASON, which was the first of a series. He has written a Tarzan tale "with" the late Edgar Rice Burroughs, novels in the Batman series, and even helped develop a graphic novel character, Jonah Hex. Lansdale's work has won numerous awards and he has been twice inducted into the International Martial Arts Hall of Fame (so don't mess with him!).
