The story covers the author's life and the hardships he and his brothers endured during the depression and into adulthood. His father left home when the author was ten and he lost his mother at age fifteen leaving six siblings to fend for themselves. The book explains how he and his brothers survived. When the three younger brothers were placed in the Delavare County Children's Home and his older brother joined the army, there was no place to go accept to join his seventeen year old brother and live off the streets. They stole milk and bread off neighbor's porches and slept in cabins at Heekin Park, gas station restrooms, or wherever they could to survive. The book also describes the author's life in the Civilian Conservation Corps, the army during World War II during the invasion of Italy, his family, and his careers as a teacher and a real estate broker.
