The Curious Pilgrim
A boy born in the depression, given low odds upon surviving birth, was declared brain-damaged, yet despite the doctors predictions, the boy survived. These are the travels and trials of a frightened boy who ran away from an orphanage, seemingly pursued by an invisible terror, and who found his way through the frozen streets of a cold, unforgiving winter. In northern New York, a boy who was rejected and considered an outcast by many family members was to survive the odds placed against him. Yet time after time, Gary survived and was seemingly protected by another unseen force. Gary lacked money and work skills and thus ill-fitting clothes on his back. Gary began to search but for what, where, or when? This is his story.
