Description:

A dangerous, homeless drifter who grew up picking cotton in virtual slavery. An upscale art dealer accustomed to the world of Armani and Chanel. A gutsy woman with a stubborn dream. A story so incredible no novelist would dare dream it. It begins outside a burning plantation hut in Louisiana . . . and an East Texas honky-tonk . . . and, without a doubt, in the heart of God. It unfolds in a Hollywood hacienda . . . an upscale New York gallery . . . a downtown dumpster . . . a Texas ranch. Gritty with pain and betrayal and brutality, this true story also shines with an unexpected, life-changing love.

During this time, he would occasionally ride the rails visiting cities and hobo jungles across America. He met Miss Debbie in 1998 and his life changed. He became an artist, public speaker, and volunteer for homeless causes. In 2006, was named Philanthropist of the Year by the citizens of Fort Worth for his work with homeless people at the Union Gospel Mission.
