From the Hightower Book Series. A sequel to Mabel.

"In a world full of abused and neglected children, I count it a privilege to have been raised by a godly father who loved his wife and children." —Roberta Gaines, daughter

Alvin watches the cruel Great Depression rip away his assets and the dry scorching wind of the Dust Bowl destroy his crops, yet he keeps his faith in God. He inspires his family to work hard, play together, and sing and pray at the end of each day. Through the providence of God, they migrate to Oregon and soon own a farm in the lush Willamette Valley. These true stories will inspire fathers to stand strong in a time when men are cowardly, deserting their place in the family and society.
