Using ethnographic interviews, an affiliation scale, and observational data from two "soup kitchens" of homeless men, Road Dogs and Loners investigates the various family types that homeless road dogs and loners rely on for support. Pippert specifically compares homeless men who typically partnered up with homeless men who were self-described loners. The groups are compared here in terms of their contact and support with biological, created, and fictive families. Interdisciplinary in nature, this work tackles themes that are relevant to the study of social class, stratification, economics, social problems, family sociology, social theory and research methods. Road Dogs and Loners provides an updated and in-depth, personal perspective on the lives and relationships of homeless men in America.
