Everett came to my store as an unsuspecting client who ended up being a very close family friend to my Dad.
 
The next two years was great. I learned all about my Dad when he was growing up as a kid in Ashland, with Everett, playing near the railroad tracks and railroad yard, chasing girls, talking about this and that, and then Everett dropped out of school, just like my Dad. Everett became a hobo at the end of 7th grade, and my Dad dropped at the end of 9th grade.
 
Everett Gracey wrote a book about his life. Tried to get it made into a movie. The script was done. I have a copy of the book and the script. Very good.

"Logline
An abused teenager leaves home at age 13. He jumps up on a boxcar with dreams of being a cowboy. His romantic delusions of grandeur are quickly dashed when he finds that the life of a 13-year-old hobo is anything but carefree.

Synopsis
He crisscrosses the western part of the U.S. riding freight trains. His adventures take him down a spiraling path of life-altering events. It’s a brutal life, especially for a 13-year-old kid alone. He must learn to fend off sexual predators that are all too happy to befriend a hungry, tired young hitchhiker, as well as the infamous train cops
hired to keep bums off the trains, the Railway Bulls who beat him to

within a few breaths shy of losing his life. But when it almost seems too late, his spirit dares to reawaken when it seems there just might be a faint glimmer of hope left that could change his life… Written int a Movie Script"
