Publisher's Summary

Pulitzer Prize-winner Edna Ferber created three wildly successful books featuring the business adventures of a dynamic, divorced single mother at the turn of the century. The first book in this classic series introduces listeners to the engaging, beautiful, and quick-talking Emma McChesney, traveling saleswoman for the T.A. Buck Featherloom Petticoat Company. Emma's 10 years on the road have taught her that living the Philosophy of Roast Beef, Medium allows her to avoid "moral pepsin" while meeting the challenges required to win in a man's world.
Armed with a sample case, killer instincts, and common sense, Emma faces wily salesmen, advances of hotel clerks and customers, and reins in her headstrong, 17-year-old son. This audiobook is populated with the strongly drawn secondary characters and witty social observances Ferber stories are known for.
