An incredible story about the hard times of the depression and a somewhat hardened old man who softens at the sight of a boy who has no hat, no gloves, no socks. If ye have done it unto the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. The very last page was a little disappointing to me, only because I think they might have expressed it better. Great book!
