Adam of the Road by Elizabeth Janet Gray

Awarded the John Newbery Medal as the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children in the year of its publication. A roads a kind of holy thing, said Roger the Minstrel to his son, Adam. Thats why its a good work to keep a road in repair, like giving alms to the poor or tending the sick. Its open to the sun and wind and rain. It brings all kinds of people and all parts of England together. And its home to a minstrel, even though he may happen to be sleeping in a castle. And Adam, though only eleven, was to remember his fathers words when his beloved dog, Nick, was stolen and Roger had disappeared and he found himself traveling alone along these same great roads, searching the fairs and market towns for his father and his dog.
