What an amazing book! George Dawson was 98 when he learned to read. Richard Glaubman was a writer who wanted to tell his story and it was a great telling! Spanning parts of 2 centuries and the whole of the twentieth, George tells Richard of his life growing up in Texas as a black man during segregation, of traveling the rails as he became a man and of his philosophy of life. Basically that was the Golden Rule. He always treated others well even during extremely difficult periods.

I learned a lot about segregation from this book as I did from THE HELP. I felt shame for the way our nation treated people just because their skin was different from ours. I think the shame is a good feeling to come away with even though George seemed to have no resentment. He is an amzing man! I loved this book!
