"Nels Anderson was a pioneer in the study of the homeless. In the early 1920s Anderson combined his own experience 'on the bummery,' with his keen sociological insight to give voice to a largely ignored underclass.  He conducted his study on Madison street in Chicago, and we come to intimately know this portion of the 1920s hobo underworld and the harshness of vagrant life and the adventures of young hobos who come to the big city." - U. Chicago review.
