Half Apache and mostly orphaned, the adventures of Edgar Presley Mint begin on an Arizona reservation at the age of seven, when the mailman's jeep accidentally runs over his head.
Shunted from the hospital to a reform school to a Mormon foster family, comedy and trouble accompany Edgar - the irresistible innocent who never truly loses heart, and whose quest for the mailman leads him to an unexpected home.
This riveting picaresque novel has become an international best-seller.

Review by paulharryallen
Hilarious, tragic and masterfully told. I can't wait for him to write some more.
Review by pippi-longstockings
Sad. Unbelievably sad. The ending is positive but the book is sad at times to read. Not depressing sad however as Udall writes with humour mixed in. A very touching book.
