Half Apache and mostly orphaned, Edgar Presley Mint's adventures begin on an Arizona reservation at the age of seven, when the mailman's jeep accidentally runs over his head. Shunted from hospital to a school for delinquents to a Mormon foster family, comedy, pain and trouble accompany Edgar through a string of larger-than-life experiences. Through it all, listeners will root for this irresistible innocent who never truly loses heart, and whose quest for the mailman leads him to an unexpected home.

Gosh. Where to begin about this incredible book? It was at times hilarious, heartbreaking, poignant and enlightening. Grabbed me from the first page and held me to the end. Udall is a wonderful observer of human character in all its triumphs, foibles and failings. The book and the character of Edgar Mint reminded me a lot of Owen Meany -- the character and the book. Highly recommended.
