Eric Hoffer spent more than 10 years as a young man, homeless on Skid Row, before becoming a migrant worker, following the harvests in California. He later prospected for gold and worked as a longshoreman which he only quit at the age of 69. From these unlikely beginnings, Hoffer evolved into an acclaimed moral and social philosopher. He wrote 10 books, including the The True Believer (1951) and The Ordeal of Change (1963), and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom before his death in 1983.
