Note: 
Based on the true story of the author's father-in-law, this self-published book is a coming- to-America from Eastern Europe story, complete with the kindly Jewish peddler traveling from town to town with his horse and buggy. The somewhat unusual twist has this peddler settling in Mississippi and eventually opening his own general store in 1904. Illustrations are in pastel colors and are somewhat dreamy in quality.
