One's teen years are often difficult. And when a teenager leaves home no matter the reason it can be more than difficult. It can be dangerous. In Mentors' Glory, fifteen-year-old Jacob leaves his home in Rochester, New Hampshire, in 1957 to find summer employment. Authors David E. Plante and Lorraine M. Plante take readers on Jacob's journey as he hitchhikes down the Eastern Seaboard.

He survives the summer adventure only because his protector, Christ, is actively involved in his life and provides Jacob with mentors to guide and help him in spite of his naAmvetAc. As he matures from an independent and strongwilled teenager to a young man with a family, Jacob once again finds himself this time with family in tow on the road, looking for a job.
