He survives the Dust Bowl but watches his mothers health slowly deteriorate. After his fathers death, he marries and witnesses the end of World War II. Josef is eager to revive the farm and begin his life anew with his wife when the banker declares that his father was heavily in debt. The banker offers Josef a sum of money for the farm. When Josef hesitates, the banker becomes irritated. He reminds Josef that he is not a farmer, that he prefers to study in the library.

This is true, Josef realizes. Although his formal education ended in his eighth year with his expulsion, the fact is that his intelligence far exceeds that of any student and even his teachers. Josef accepts the offer, and he and Grace move to New Orleans. However, Josefs plans for college fizzle when the University denies his application due to his lack of formal education. He takes a job as a janitor at the University and studies on his own in the library.

Then one day a strange man makes Josef a ludicrous offer: He offers Josef one million dollars to do a project for him. Josef laughs mildly and informs the stranger that he must have the wrong person, After all, Josef is just a janitor. The man insists that only Josef can perform this project. Josef accepts the offer but upon completion wonders what he really did.
