Summary
"Christopher Bennett grew up ambitious, bright, and hardworking on an Ohio farm. His first wage-earning job was in a foundry. An imposing physical specimen, a World War I volunteer, and a square shooter, he rises to levels of wealth and power generally open only to the East Coast-educated sons of corporate vice presidents. When he ultimately earns the position of general manager at a steel corporation, it never occurs to him that he has deserted his heritage. In his mind's eye, he is more than just a friend of the workers, he is one. He doesn't see that success has changed him and that the workers are no longer his friends. It takes an angry strike, a violent attack, and the Great Depression to bring him back to reality, to reveal that a life of simplicity is the only life congruous with nature. The Story of a Country Boy was first published in 1934 and has been out of print for more than sixty years."--BOOK JACKET
