Beginning with the historical backdrop of America's emergence from the ashes of the First World War, this novel traces the harrowing struggles of Josie, a parentless Norwegian immigrant; George, a streetwise orphan from New York; Stevie, a dust bowl survivor from Oklahoma; and a host of others who have found workable ways to climb up from the bottom rungs of our classless society. Their stories parallel the hard times and the triumphs found in every family whose history is grounded in American enterprise and idealism. It is also a story that pays tribute to caring citizens in every community who continue to open their homes and their hearts to those in need.
