This book captures the resilience of children who experience a life of poverty. Their cognitive, social, and emotional lives remain intact because of the presence of supportive adult influences, and other community supports. Anyone who is interested in the study of resilience, preventive intervention, or developmental ecological perspectives on children's adaptation would learn much from this book.
