Overview
This is the fascinating account of a man who spent almost a year interviewing one hundred and ten homeless people who live in and around his small town of Auburn, California. The stories in this book will change your view of homeless people forever. These stories will make you laugh, they will make you cry, and they will pull at the strings of your heart
Description
There are one hundred and ten interviews with the homeless people who live in and around Auburn, California. Who is really out there, on the streets? How did they get there? How many of them are on drugs, or abuse alcohol? How many are just victims of a bad economy? Have their lives changed, during these difficult economic times? Where do they look for help? Where do they look for hope? Do they still have dreams for a better life? If you read this book, it will change your view of homeless people forever. It might also change your life. The author says that after he met so many of his homeless neighbors, his own life was changed forever. As just one example, he is now so grateful for all of the little privileges in his life that he used to take for granted, like the ability to take a shower every day, and the ability to get up in the middle of the night and get a snack from the referigerator, and the ability to sleep in a warm, dry bed.
