Overview

During the "Great Depression" many people took to the road. They were called hobos, drifters, tramps or bums. Among those were bankers, lawyers, businessmen, farmers and stockbrokers: men who lost it all, and ashamed of their failure and unable to feed their families. They begged, stole and/or did odd jobs to earn food; they searched backyard clotheslines for clothing and whatever else they could utilize.

This is the story of Josh Smith, a hobo who during that time took to the road and foraged in the heartland for food, and a place to bed down at night; however, Josh's drifting lifestyle came to an abrupt halt in the fall of 1939 in Silo, Kansas.

It is also a story of Craig Richards, who is summoned decades later by those from the spirit world as the one mortal person who can release them from this world into the next.
