"This is the story of a friendship between a dear little girl, Letty Ann Oliver, of the mountains, and a queer old fellow that the children call Simple Simon. He came to the settlement, bringing his patchwork quilt bundle, and he also brought tricks and stories, a lively violin, and many tunes, and a contended philosophy of life that lends color and beauty to every story in the book.
