It’s 1912, Henry and his brother Robert are fascinated by the automobile. Their father calls the automobile a noisy, smelly contraption. When the mud hole near their farm continues to trap automobiles, their father gives the boys the responsibility of using the horse to pull stuck automobiles from the mud. One adventure leads to another, but when the mischief goes too far, what will happen to their summer plans?
Through it all, Henry learns that honesty is more important than money, and a job well done sometimes has its rewards.
