Max is furious! His mother has just remarried and is off on a first-class honeymoon, while he's shipped off to visit his father, Woody, a camel-keeper. What a rotten deal!
Max likes the good life, and can't understand why Woody enjoys traveling around the country, living in a trailer and selling camel rides. It's not until Max meets a wild assortment of people on the road -- like taco-stand owners, mother and daughter con artists, and a famous Las Vegas singer--that he starts to realize he doesn't know it all.
After one short summer, Max's journey is just beginning!
