IL 5-8 RL 7.1
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.
