A story of tragedy and triumph, this book sheds light on life during the great depression through the eyes of a boy turned hobo. While it documents what life was like all across America, and provides interesting facts about hobo life, its strongest feature is a genuine and convincing lesson about the importance and value of helping others. This is a must read not only for history lovers, but also for those who love a strong story with an excellent message. Best for Ages 9-11.
