Joseph "Beard" Palmer was alive in a time when beards were not only unpopular and unstylish, but also illegal in some places. Joseph grew his beard long and full, not just to be contrary, but to demonstrate his non-conformists beliefs. Because of the simple action of growing a thick beard, he was taunted and even was jailed. But Beard Palmer was not easily intimidated. He maintained his right to have a beard through good humoured protests. This is ultimately a triumphant story that teaches children to not only follow their own paths, but to stick up for what they believe in, no matter what the consequences.
