Hot Rod By Henry Gregor Felsen 60th Anniversary “bud Crayne Lives":
SPEED...DANGER...DEATH!This phrase was splashed across the cover of Hot Rod by Henry Gregor Felsen, first published in 1950. In this exciting story from the 50’s, Bud Crayne has a fast car, and the attitude that he can drive his way out of any situation.
Based on an actual horrifying accident, this book was requested by the Des Moines Safety Council to help teens understand the importance of safe driving. Hot Rod was reprinted many times, with the last set of Felsen’s books published in 1990.
Back by popular demand, Hot Rod has been selling world wide. Readers who read the book years ago have been pleased to find that their hero, Bud Crayne is still preparing for the run to Trenton in the ’32 he built himself!
A favorite of teens for over 30 years, Hot Rod takes us back to life in the 1950’s. When asked what books most influence him when he was growing up, Stephen King (yes, THAT Stephen King) named Hot Rod.
I am Henry’s daughter and have added a foreword to give his readers a small peek at his life, from my point of view. Tamily photographs are also included.
