In the shadow of one affluent American city, Dr. Christensen has dedicated his life to caring for society's throwaway kids - the often-abused, unloved children who live on the streets without access to proper health care, all the while fending off constant threats from thugs, gangs, pimps, and other predators.
With the Winnebago as his moveable medical center, Christensen and his team travel around the outskirts of Phoenix, attending to the children and teens who need him most. With tenderness and humor, Dr. Christensen chronicles everything from the struggles of the van's early beginnings, to the support system it became for the kids, and the ultimate recognition it has achieved over the years. Along with his immense professional challenges, he also describes the trials and joys he faces while raising a growing family with his wife, Amy. By turns poignant, heartbreaking, and charming, Dr. Christensen's story is a gripping and rich memoir of his work and family, one of those rare books that stays with you long after it ends.

The reality of our streets
The well-told stories of a life spent serving the forgotten teens in his community. Highly recommended not only for it's informative value but also as a source of inspiration for anyone who wants to take action in their own town.
