Summary Captain James Arruda Henry was in his mid-nineties when he began to learn to read and write. Inspired by the story of 98-year old man who had also lived without literacy, James began practicing writing his own name and went on to write his first book, recording his earliest recollections of his grandfather's farm in the Azores to a snippet of his daily life today.
