About this item
Left by his incapacitated mother at a Catholic orphanage in Brooklyn, Burch describes his unhappy life as a foster child, experiences as a runaway, struggle for survival, growth of self-reliance, and triumph over loneliness
At the age of eight, the author began a three-year odyssey through a series of orphan asylums and foster homes, punctuated by episodes of living in the streets--a journey through a world of hostile strangers, abusive adults, and suspicious children.
