Seattle, and every major city, is dealing with the issue of homelessness. Here is one story that offers insight into the challenges of survival.

View from the Tent is the story of one man broken by an event in his life that leads him down the trail to homelessness. Its an unusual tale because it's told through an exchange of notes between the author and Atreus, a pseudonym chosen by the homeless man. These exchanges bring the reader into the story line and the changes that take place in his life, and at the various camps, where he hunkered down. 

“Observations from a homeless man living in various shelters in and around Seattle. These musings come from a man who was crushed by violence and loss. His reflections and stories will give hope to those people supporting others in similar situations,living in the outskirts of society. "I had no idea there were people like Atreus living on the street." "A great insight into those invisible in our society."
