Publishers Description: This is an inspirational tale of how one man can so touch the lives of many. Australian streetkids are the forgotten underclass of society. An ever-increasing number of children, they are often abused, frequently in the clutch of drug-dealers, and usually engaged in crime just to make enough money to stay alive. Their childhood dreams of a happy, fulfilled future are lost forever. This book tells of Father Rileys faltering first steps to helping such children, and his determination to pledge the rest of his life to giving them back their dreams. It tells of the heartbreaking situations hes witnessed, the touching tales of kids with nothing left but their own will to survive, and the way hes been able to touch so many of their lives. Throughout the triumphs and the tears is Father Rileys inimitable humour, his sense of fun, and the indomitable spirit that has recharged so many of the kids hes helped.
