Yancy, the Youngest Hobo
In this true, heroic story of perseverance, bravery and valor, young Yancy survives by his own strength and ingenuity. Starting with his earliest memories, the hardscrabble years growing up in the hills of Kentucky, to serving in the U.S. Army during WWII, life after the war and on to marriage and children. A very captivating read.
