This is one of my favorite books on Francis, presented in the first person by a Little Brother of the Gospel, who has lived as Francis did.

This is a book I read in college, and it changed the way I looked at the world. Somewhere in moves, and shifting about, the book was lost, stolen, given away, and I got a craving for it. It is as good now as it was 20 years ago. And, it still changes my views.
