Review:
Boniface, an eleven-year-old orphan, is shipped off to a neighboring village to live with the mayor, his uncle. Transported by a hired wagon driver, he is unceremoniously dumped in the forest at night where he wanders until he collapses on the verge of unconsciousness. He is rescued by someone he comes to suspect is the locally vilified robber. A thoroughly likable character, Boniface matures in a believable fashion in an old-fashioned setting - rural Germany in 1867.
