Summary: In November 2001, 27 year old Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall packed his life in a bag, complete with tent, notebooks, pen and a broken heart, and set out to spend a year in Tent City, the largest homeless settlement in North America. When he arrives, he finds an anarchic community of fugitives, drug addicts, prostitutes, dealers and ex-cons, a society where the rules are made up nightly and your life depends on knowing them. Not only does Bishop-Stall manage to survive, but against all odds his own heart and spirit slowly mend.
