Title

The Miracle Life of Edgar Mint

Description

Resuscitated after having his head crushed under the wheels of mail truck, young Edgar Pressley Mint, the book’s eponymous half-Apache protagonist, embarks on a Dickensian odyssey in which he stoically endures myriad indignities, with the help of a few friends and his beloved Hermes Jubilee 2000 typewriter on which he records his thoughts, fears, and aspirations. After harrowing experiences in a Globe hospital and at Indian boarding school on the Fort Apache Reservation, Edgar finds comfort and understanding in the arms of a floundering Mormon family before resuming his quest to set things right.
