Durango Street: The story of the young boy Rufus Henry, who begins his new life after passing time in Pine Valley Honour Camp. His mother has moved to Durango Street, a shabby street with garbage lying around and where crime and violence rule everybody's life. In order not to live in danger he joins the Moors against the paroles and his life changes abruptly. Rufus again gets involved in drugs, gang fighting and of course in conflicts with the police.
Frank Bonham has created a story that passes everyday in the streets of big cities. In addition he tries to show up the reality of these kids hanging around the blocks. There is no denying that "Durango Street" is one of the best books you can read about the issue of street kids' problems. Although it was published in 1965 it contains all the present problems of a young juvenile in the jungle of the street.
To put it in a nut-shell you can say that Durango Street by Frank Bonham is worth to read every cent. It is just a phenomenal story and a must-have for every booklover.

This book had a lot of action, suspense, and drama. I thought it was a high quality book and i would recommend it to anyone who enjoys gang stories or action books. Durango Street kept u on the edge of the seat and would not let you put the book down.

Von thirdtwin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Was first given this book as a school assignment- and remembering the impression it made on me then, with it's gritty realism and atmosphere of danger I decided to reread it years later to see how it held up. The story itself is solid- but what really makes this book interesting to an adult is the context and the detailed world that the main character moves around in. It's also interesting to compare the level of danger and menance in this work from the 1960s with books since- to realize though the characters in Durango Street are in the same type danger as works written since, the style of this is almost tame compared to other works on the same topic. (it is most often compared to the work of S.E. Hinton) Eventually the plot of the book does fall apart at the end of the story because too many things are left dangling. The story is told from the viewpoint of the main character- and several plot points are never resolved- we never know if he overcomes his environment. We are never shown what happens to him in regards to the next confrontation with the other gang he angered- or even told in an epilogue. One of the other driving points of the plot is bungled when the confrontation to it is also never resolved. The book doesn't as much end as it just comes to a sudden stop. It has an interesting setting but there are three or more major plot points just left completely dangling with no resolution. The work has an interesting background but so much is left unresolved Bonham could have written an entire sequel with this same main character. Reading it now I have to say the setting holds up- since it gives people a chance to see a slice of life in words that they wouldn't want to experience- but there are too many plot points left unresolved for no good reason.....and it seems the author is holding back on some gritty details that he could have used to add even more texture to the story to keep things sanitary for his audience. For an adult it might be interesting to read this book and the Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison for example- the works of David Goines, then S.E. Hinton. Taken together these books add different perspectives to a similar topic. Durango Street is worth reading as part of what became a larger genre- because of its dialogue and writing style, even though it has dangling plot lines. Hope this helps.

I can't really speak from experience of how life for gang members must be. However growing up in low income housing myself, without getting into detail, I can kind of relate to the hardships of what the characters of this book face and still do face today. This book was published in 1965 and from what I read hear and watch, not much has changed. Read it.
