“I got your letter yesterday, and it is a good thing you are putting onto this job a real high-powered salesman like me, rather than one of your ordinary men. When I explain the situation here, you will see that any ordinary man would have quit cold. But not Alexander Botts. . . .” And so begins "Alexander Botts Rides Again", the stories of this “natural born salesman,” who, despite little to no sales experience, lands a job selling Earthworm tractors through sheer gumption. What follows is mayhem as the tractor salesman extraordinaire tries to explain his way out of many a disastrous situation.
Whether you remember reading William Hazlett Upson’s tales or you’re just discovering the antics of his memorable character, the amusing adventures in Alexander Botts Rides Again will delight and entertain.
