But Horses imagination has been ignited by a free-spirited, dynamic, genius-type vagabond named Clint, who roams the West picking apples while spouting poetry, philosophy and (or so it seems to Horse) answers to the deeper questions of life.

Taking a leave from his job, Horse has closeted himself with Emerson, Thoreau, Whitman and the like, looking for the key to it all and straining his long-suffering wifes patience to the breaking point. But the cosmic answers are slow in coming, and Horse is beginning to falter (much to his familys relief) when Clint himself bursts on the scene, sweeping all doubts away with a dazzling display of high-sounding philosophic doubletalk.

For Horse it seems now that the meaning of it all must be near at hand, but it is quickly evident that Clints thoughts are more on Horses attractive (and engaged) sister-in-law than Horses mind. Which results in some tense, not to mention disenchanting, moments for our hero. As the play ends Horse is still looking for the answers, but the search is now within the context of his own life and limitations and there is the happy suggestion that he may be on the right track at last.
