The book chronicles the inspiring story of Justice Jose Mari Paredes from his happy childhood in the province of Abra to his outstanding work in the Judiciary, all the way to the Supreme Court; from his valuable contributions to the framing of the 1971 Philippine Constitution to his leadership in various national organizations.
