In The Least of These My Brothers, Dick Falkner, on his own since the death of his mother, arrives in the bustling mining town of Boyd City. Poor, homeless, and hungry, he’s a printer by trade who lost his job during a Kansas City strike. When a kind print shop owner named Udell gives him a job, Dick lays downs roots in the town, eventually becoming involved in a local church.
Dick’s hardscrabble past gives his faith a different perspective than that of most Christians, and his philosophy is met with resistance. Nevertheless, he rises as a leader in the community, one whose belief in service and championing of the poor will put him at odds with the city’s selfish elite who will stop at nothing to ruin him . . .
