Jim the Boy
by Tony Earley [Earley]
A simple tale about a simpler
time. this details the life of farm boy Jim Glass, age 10. Glass is a pretty
typical young boy, growing up in North Carolina in the Depression years. For
readers who long for a book that explains the subleties of morals and ethics,
and stays away from sex, violence and cursing, this is it. The Chicago Tribune
says it's a novel "that perfectly captures the innocence and confusion and
wonder of childhood." I agree. -- review submitted by Barbara R. - a customer of the Gere Branch Library
