This autobiography is truly an enjoyable read, and the quality of the writing is excellent. The only drawback is in the formatting which has produced many typographical errors. But once one gets used to it, it becomes easy to decifer and worth the effort.

Really enjoying this book as it gives so many insights to life during the 1800's as a child, and young adult trying to find a place in this world.  I was never bored reading this book and highly recommend to anyone who loves history, and especially what life was like for those living during this time period.
