Best Answer

There is an article link that a little bit about his childhood that was probably in the book that they mention in the article called The Long Journey.

It seems his childhood was spent in abject poverty and grew up in troubling times. He had a big family of ten and got into trouble alot in his teens. He faced racism when he came to America and had to work menial jobs.
