Yancy, the Youngest Hobo
"Mr. Irvin Yancey's earliest memory was from age three. As he stood holding his mother's dress tail, his enraged father shot and fatally wounded her. His father was never prosecuted for his crime. After only a brief time, Irvin's father remarried and, at the age of seven, Irvin was on his own. In this true, heroic story of perseverance, bravery and valor, young Irvin Yancey survives by his own strenght and ingenuity. But Irving's life was about more than just survival; it's a moving tale of courage, fortitude and love against all odds."--Page 4 of cover.
