Bud is going to jump a train to go west but he misses the train just barely. Bud’s mother dies 4 years earlier and so he his motherless so he is out looking for his Daddy and he has nowhere to live. Herman doesn’t think Bud is any part of his family so Bud keeps on trying to persuade Herman that he is.
Solution Bud runs away from the Amos's house. He goes to the trees next to the library and sleeps there. Bud decides to go to Grand Rapids because he is going to try and find Herman E. Calloway who he thinks is his Daddy. Bud finds out how to get to Grand Rapids. He goes to the library and finds a book that says the distance of a city to a city. Bud decides to walk to Grand Rapids. In Owosso Mi. at 2:30 in the morning and a car runs by and stops offers Bud something to eat and a ride. Then next morning Bud wakes up and has breakfast and the person who finds him in Owosso gives him a ride all the way to Grand Rapids. Bud finds Herman in a club called The Log Cabin. Herman asks bud what his mothers name was and Bud said Angela Janet Calloway which was Herman’s daughter. Which makes Herman Bud’s grandfather. So Herman ran to his room and cried. Bud showed proof that She was his Momma by a picture. I don’t know what happened to Bud but I know there is a 2 nd book.
