Free Fall of Webster Cummings, the American Odyssey Collection (Odyssey) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this epic drama from beloved radio personality Tom Bodett, a host of unforgettable characters from the end of the road - Alaska - venture to the lower 48 to discover an America they barely recognize. The first to arrive is Ed Flannigan, who has one arm, no job, and not a clue about how to get on with his life. Somehow he winds up in Quartz Creek, Oregon, contending with New Age colonists, organic vegetables, and a cranky old farmer who gives him peculiar and good advice about growing peaches. Meanwhile, Lloyd and Evelyn Decker leave home and hit the road in a powder blue Road Ranger to find their wayward children; Oliver the Dreamer, a soft-spoken amnesiac, finds a home and a family under a bridge in Seattle; and Webster Cummings, a statistical research analyst, survives a fall from a commuter plane to bring together these and other strange and wonderful characters for an unexpected revelation that alters all their lives.

Synopsis:

This is the first installment--of five--of never-before-published stories about life in the lower 48 states. Tom Bodett reads his humorous yet dignified material with delicious timing. "The Free Fall of Webster Cumming" is the story of Webster's near death experience, and is one of the eight stories contained here.
