Overview

This nineteenth century German story penned by Franz Hoffman narrates the lives of Jack and John; One the poor but diligent son of a widowed factory worker, and the other the wealthy and slothful son of a successful businessman. The tale follows the boys throughout the course of their lives and circumstances, illustrating the rewards and consequences of their contrasting choices.

This book offers a perspective on labor, fortitude, patience and perseverance, much needed in our time. It serves as a sagacious guide for the young reader as well as a source of inspiration for the reforming sluggard who wishes to heed to biblical encouragement to "study the ant."

This book was edited by a human being. It has no missing or blurred pages, nor errant marks. Spelling errors, and ommitted or unintended characters, will be few, if any.
