Manny Bustos is one tough kid. He's a survivor. He lives on the street in a cardboard box in Juarez, Mexico. He sees in Robert S. Locke, an American GI who crosses the bridge to escape his Vietnam nightmare, the ultimate patron. Certainly a man who has money to throw away on drink has enough to spare for a red-haired street urchin. Their encounter in an alley with four thugs who have survived is the test for just how much Manny and Robert have in common.
SUBJECTS:     Emotional problems -- Fiction
