He wants to work and, despite being nearly overwhelmed by a string of hard times, he starts a new job at Udell's print shop. Dick is soon found to be a skillful, honest worker, a man of great integrity, who becomes a significant blessing in countless ways to his town and church.
President Ronald Reagan wrote: "That book, That Printer of Udell's, had an impact I shall always remember. The term "role model" was not a familiar term in that time and place. But I realize I found a role model in that traveling printer whom Harold Bell Wright had brought to life. He set me on a course I've tried to follow even unto this day. I shall always be grateful." Themes: honesty, hypocrisy, generosity and sacrifice; practical Christian living!
