Same Kind Of Different As Me by Ron Hall and Denver Moore
I'll have to say that this book has leaped to the top of my best books read list. I didn't read the cover of this book and began thinking it was a fiction novel, it wasn't until I was about halfway through that I caught a glimpse of "true story" on the rear cover.
A synopsis. One man the son of a sharecropper, never went to school, never earned any money only picked cotton all of his life before jumping on a train to Texas and ended up living on the streets. The other man is a millionaire. The millionaire befriend the homeless man because of his wife's vision. The homeless man ends up teaching the millionaire things that you can't learn in school.
I did a pretty horrible review, I suggest you visit their web site to learn more.
