From the Newbery Award winning author of Across Five Aprils and Up a Road Slowly comes a tale of a brave young man s struggle to find his own strength during the Great Depression. America in 1932 was an America whose dreams were simple. A job, food to fill you, a place to sleep, and shoes without holes for millions of people these simple needs were thing more than dreams. At fifteen years of age, Josh had to make his own way through a country of angry and frightened people. This is the story of a young man s struggle to find a life for himself in the turbulent thirties.
