A man, down on his luck, having lost his job, takes up residence as a homeless person living in Morningside Park. He had some knowledge of wild foods, having grown up in the Ozarks of northern Arkansas before moving to the big city to pursue a career in IT. Now he strives to stay alive — sometimes he can even thrive — off the wilds within the city.
He carries a collapsible camp shovel on his belt that he bought at the Army surplus store on 42nd Street. He carries on his shoulder a rucksack for porting his water and the forageables he gathers. He sleeps in debris shelters when he wants to stay outside, but he also has underground hideouts that make use of the extensive tunneling under the City’s surface. He becomes an anti-hero and a guardian of sorts over the places in the city that he loves. He has no concern for Truth, Justice, and the American Way, as those concepts have let him down. But he struggles to keep peace (of a sort) in his little world.
