About the book
A gripping and powerful story about survival on the streets.
This is a true account, in descriptive and sometimes graphic detail, of what it was like to survive homelessness. It is the story of one person’s struggle to come to terms with what can only be described as a real-life disaster.
More than just a good read, A Homeless Panic provides a profound and moving account of what it’s like to be homeless in America.
Our society doesn’t look favorably on homelessness and doesn’t understand the problem. Even though the United States is the wealthiest nation on earth, we have been unable to resolve the growing problem of homelessness. This book can help bring a better understanding between the general public and the homeless.
The author delves into the complex realities of homelessness to paint a compelling picture of individuals living on the street and of their struggles for daily survival. All of them are trying to make the best they can of a desperate situation. This book presents an honest look at their foibles, their values, and their humanity.
