The Adventures of Space & Hobo
By Ken L. Birks

Viet Nam Testimonies, Books

The Adventures of Space and Hobo tells the story of Ken’s vagabond life after Vietnam. It explores the on-the-ground confusion and chaos of the Vietnam War and its effects on a generation, and those who served. Named Space by a new friend, Hobo, Ken and his traveling companion hit the road to partake of all the possibilities of that generation in search of adventure and uncharted experiences. They did this by allowing fate to be their guide while navigating through the spiritual maze of the 1970s as they traveled by freight trains and hitchhiked through our nation’s cities. By using their wits and street knowledge they were able to take advantage of the opportunities that came their way. As a couple of hippies travelling through our nation’s cities as vagabonds or rolling stones they were looking for the next free ride to nowhere in particular while mooching off of whatever resources or people who happened to come their way. Ken writes in such a way that you are with him at every turn of this amazing journey. Because Ken writes from the perspective of the redeemed, this journey is rich with God's fingerprints at every step of the way. And at a deeper level, while the particulars are Ken's unique story, the journey he describes is one that each of us either has, or must, travel.
