The Bishop's Shadow

by I.T. Thurston

An interesting study of Boston slum life, fine and good in tone. The book gives realistic descriptions of the struggles the street boys have to make a living, how they rough it when without a home, how they form friendships and political combinations, and generously share their joys and sorrows... One reads on, conscious at the time only of the story; but meanwhile one is getting many valuable suggestions on practical methods for reaching the poor and neglected classes of people. The delightful character of 'The Bishop' is none other than Bishop Brooks.
