Twelve-year-old Knot Crews, an African Americqan boy growing up in the segregated south Georgia town of Statenville, discovers a robber's lost bag of cash and is nearly overcome with the moral dilemma. Should he return it to the bank or...?

Knot decides instead to help his needy neighbors, both black and white, and he begins mailing them hundred-dollar bills anonymously. Will the money transform their lives? Mabe, but not in the way Knot expects. The weight of Knot's world can't be lifted by cold hard cash alone.

Set during the turbulent 1960's, The Little Known is a classic coming-of-age story full of hope and forgiveness.

He is hugigng a brown paper sack and running Knot's way, coming to rob him maybe of his play-cousin Lee's bicycle. Knot starts panting like a dog to the strumming of haywire on the front wheel spokes...
