HAPPINESS IS A WARM FAMILY. . . "Rating on a scale from 1 to 10, my childhood was an 11." So begins this uplifting memoir about three sisters growing up in tiny Maybrook, New York, during the 1950s and 1960s, told by the sister who remembers it well. These real-life stories remind one of Little House on the Prairie, reassuring us that there have been happy childhoods in America. Written in response to a dire medical prognosis that turned out to be wrong, Kathy notes that if she could have anything in the world, it would be to relive that childhood, changing nothing except to get to know her family even better.

The terms historically used to describe them include "bums," "hoboes," "migrants," "street people," "transients," "tramps," and "vagrants." Just as varied as the words we have used to describe them are the reasons many people have found themselves living in the land of opportunity without permanent residence. The book considers homelessness and its distinctive character in three periods of American history: the era of tramps and hoboes in the late 1800s-early 1900s, the era of transients and migrants in the 1930s, and the era of homeless and "street" people in the last 40 years. It clarifies the multiple meanings of the word "homeless" today and demonstrates that homelessness is a symptom of more than one problem, leading to confusion about the issue of homelessness and hampering attempts to reduce its occurrence. Author Neil Larry Shumsky, PhD, also postulates that the treatment of homelessness in England before the colonization of North America laid the foundation of pervasive American attitudes and practices.
