Roastbeef's Promise: When Your Dad's Dying Wish Is to Have His Ashes Sprinkled in Each State, What's a Son to Do?
When Jim Roastbeef Hume embarks on a quest to sprinkle his father's ashes in each of the forty-eight contiguous states, he has no idea that a series of bizarre and ridiculous adventures await. But nothing will deter him from fulfilling the promise he made to his dying father-not a brief incarceration in Iowa or a punctured lung in South Dakota. As he travels across the country, he picks up numerous new friends, presides over the ultimate party, poses as a lesbian s boyfriend, and gives away a very pregnant bride in a Las Vegas wedding. And who could have dreamed that somewhere amidst the craziness of dropping ashes from a crop duster and finding Elvis's toenail, Roastbeef would stumble upon a lucrative new career? Join Roastbeef as he drives, bikes, hitchhikes, rides the rails, and mo-peds his way around the country. This is one warm and funny road trip you won't want to miss. Praise for Roastbeef's Promise: 'It's difficult to take death's sting and weave a tale of adventure and laughs. David does it!' -Rick Dees, radio and television personality Roastbeef's Promise is a 2010 IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award Finalist.. Price: $19.76
