Unhappy at his foster home, Bud escapes with a suitcase filled with personal treasures and words of wisdom from his late mother. He may not know who his father is, but a flyer left behind by his mother leads him towards the famous band leader Herman E. Calloway, who might just be the man he's looking for. Bud is determined to let nothing, not even hunger or fear, to stand in the way of his search.
For use in schools and libraries only. Ten-year-old Bud, a motherless boy living in Flint, Michigan during the Great Depression, escapes a bad foster home and sets out in search of the man he believes to be his father--the renowned bandleader, H.E. Calloway of Grand Rapids.
