Francis: The Poor Man of Assisi
Tomie de Paola (au) (il)
Francis di Bernardone was born in the small Italian town of Assisi in 1182 A.D. The son of a wealthy cloth merchant, he enjoyed the privileged life of a young nobleman. But as he grew older, he changed; his worldly experiences no longer satisfied him. A love for poverty, nature, simplicity, and joy -- these were the qualities that gradually seemed important. Finally, Francis exchanged his wealthy life for one of poverty. He wandered the streets, begging his meals and preaching. Slowly he began to attract a loyal group of followers, the first “brothers” in the famous order that he founded. In 1228, two years after his death, Francis was proclaimed a saint. This book was published to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the birth of Francis of Assisi. Full-color illus.
