Return Fare

Return Fare tells the story of a 15-year-old from British Columbia who learns the rules of survival the fast way -- and the hard way. Disappointed in love, he hitchikes south and becomes enmeshed in the racial tensions of America. He is accidentally thrown into a prison for "wetbacks," and the story of his attempts to escape the depravities and corruption he finds there blow open the American penal system and cast a pall over contemporary social values. A powerful, raw novel in the tradition of classic realism.
