This paper discusses "Vancouver's Hoboes" by Andrew Roddan and explains that Roddan's book provides us with an account of the lives of the homeless and jobless during the Great Depression and an insight into a desperate culture many of us have only glimpsed even during these difficult times. Whilst modern society reels from the growing problems of unemployment, expensive consumer goods, and the temptations of gambling, alcohol, and other horrors, most have not lived at the very depths of despair these homeless people are familiar with.
