Originally published in 1950, this Newbery Award winner embodies the quiet method of changing the world. Amos Fortune lived a hard life, but his calmness and solid beliefs affected everyone he came in contact with. His life story teaches us lessons that many people today seem to have forgotten; lessons of patience and forgiveness. And that a little hard work can go a long way toward making your life, and the lives of those around you that much richer :o)
