  If I Were Seventeen Again  
  If I Were Seventeen Again and Other Essays contains seventeen pieces that Jesse Stuart drew from his autobiographical works, in which he addressed his views on education, the value of rural life, and the opportunities for young people in the United States. Stuart feels that even if schools are poor, as was his one-room school at Plum Grove, students still have every opportunity for success, and today most student have education handed to them on a platter, and they don’t have to fight for an education like he did.
