by James G. Houston

About The Book

The story is about the growth of a little boy who was introduced to the streets and sex at a very early age. His mother and grandfather were from the South. They were poor financially but rich with love. His mother instilled in him and his siblings that they should take care of one another, so he was very close to his siblings. They took good care of him. However, at an early age, he was left in Indiana with their grandfather, while his siblings were taken to New York by their mother. He survived his environment for three years before he was reunited with them in New York. He looked up to his oldest brother who guided and taught him that school and hard work can lead them to a better way of life. His brother was an excellent role model. They both worked hard to help their family in any way they could. After he finished college, he joined his older brother in the New York City Department of Correction. This boy grew into a strong, positive black man who led his family to that better way of life.
