The story of "The Friend of Youth" is told here in a brief, popular manner for teenagers and adults. A practical joker with a great sense of humor in his youth, St. John Bosco (1815-1888) grew up to become a priest and the founder of the Salesians. This book relates the many prophetic dreams he had, how Our Lady called him and helped him to become a priest, his struggles with the devil, and much more - an easy read, and a great book for any Catholic.
