"A first-hand account of the turbulent struggle for civil rights and the willingness and courage to change the course of history...A teen-aged boy who stepped off a cotton farm in Alabama and into the epicenter of the struggle for civil rights in America...During the 1960's he was repeatedly a victim of violence and intimidation, but his singular belief in non-violent action, inspired by his mentor, Dr. Martin Luther King, was a defining characteristic of his leadership and vision."

This book has earned its place on my short list of all time favorites. The opening chapter was remarkable. By page eleven I knew I was in for a wonderful read.
