Description - True Vine by John W. Fountain
John W. Fountain grew up on some of the meanest streets in Chicago, where drugs, crime, and broken homes consigned so many black children to a life of despair and self-destruction. A father at seventeen, a college dropout at nineteen, a welfare case soon after, Fountain was on the verge of giving up all hope. One thing saved him-his faith, his own true vine. True Vine is John Fountain's moving memoir of his childhood and of the religious awakening that gave him the determination to rebuild his life. It is an inspiring story of one man's American dream-a dream that all of us can share.
