Flint Orphan Finds Missing Family in Grand Rapids.
When ten-year old Bud Caldwell flees an abusive foster family, he sets out on a journey across Michigan that restores his faith in the adult world. Along the way, he plots to hop a train from a hastily constructed Hooverville to a job as a migrant worker, hitch-hikes with a union organizer, and lands in a hot, Depression-era jazz band.
