Description
During the ten weeks John Frame spent with the homeless community around Harvard University, his street companions coached him about a world he had known only from the outside. While John's nearly sleepless first night foreshadowed the challenges and surprises to come, he quickly discovered acceptance and community while spending the summer among his homeless friends. They include Chubby John, who offered John a tent at his camp before the summer even began; George, who was the first homeless person John met after moving to the area the year before; and Dane, a former cocaine addict who spoke with a professor's vocabulary. John became especially close with Neal, a deeply spiritual man who battled the bottle, along with concerns that, because of his health, he may have been living his last days. -- p. [4] of cover.
