Audio CD. Dimensions: 6.5in. x 5.5in. x 1.1in.What can you get with twenty-five dollars and a dreamAdam Shepard graduated from college feeling disillusioned by the apathy around him and was then incensed after reading Barbara Ehrenreichs famous work Nickel and Dimeda book that gave him a feeling of hopelessness about the working class in America. He set out to disprove Ehrenreichs theorythe notion that those who start at the bottom stay at the bottomby making something out of nothing to achieve the American Dream. Shepards plan was simple. With a sleeping bag, the clothes on his back, and 25 in cash, and restricted from using his contacts or college education, he headed out for Charleston, South Carolina, a randomly selected city, with one objective: to work his way out of homelessness and into a life that would give him the opportunity for success. His goal was to have, after one year, 2, 500, a working automobile, and a furnished apartment. Scratch Beginnings is the earnest and passionate account of Shepards struggle to overcome the pressures placed on the homeless. His story will not only inspire listeners, but will also remind them that success can come to anyone who is willing to work hardand that America is still one of the most hopeful countries in the world.
