Sex, drugs, and...bug stew? In the vein of The Glass Castle and Wild, Cea Sunrise Person´s compelling memoir of a childhood spent with her dysfunctional counterculture family in the Canadian wilderness - a searing story of physical, emotional, and psychological survival. In the late 1960s, riding the crest of the counterculture movement, Cea´s family left a comfortable existence in California to live off the land in the Canadian wilderness. But unlike most commune dwellers of the time, the Persons weren´t trying to build a new society - they wanted to escape civilization altogether. Led by Cea´s grandfather Dick, they lived a pot-smoking, free-loving, clothing-optional life under a canvas tipi without running water, electricity, or heat for the bitter winters. Living out her grandparents´ dream with her teenage mother, Michelle, young Cea knew little of the world beyond her forest. She spent her summers playing nude in the meadow and her winters snowshoeing behind the grandfather she idolized. Despite fierce storms, food shortages, and the occasional drug-and-sex-infused party for visitors, it seemed to be a mostly happy existence. For Michelle, however, now long separated from Cea´s father, there was one crucial element missing: a man. When Cea was five, Michelle took her on the road with a new boyfriend. As the trio set upon a series of ill-fated adventures, Cea began to question both her highly unusual world and the hedonistic woman at the centre of it - questions that eventually evolved into an all-consuming search for a more normal life. Finally, in her early teens, Cea realized she would have to make a choice as drastic as the one her grandparents once had in order to save herself. While a successful international modeling career offered her a way out of the wilderness, Cea discovered that this new world was in its own way daunting and full of challenges. Containing 24 intimate black-and-white family photos, No... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cea Sunrise Person. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/harp/006443/bk_harp_006443_sample.mp3.

´´Unquestionably, it was going to be highly dangerous. Yet I felt it was quite natural to jump at the task. After all, if you don´t like action and excitement, you don´t go into police work. And, what the hell, I figured, nobody lives forever!´´ - Eliot Ness On February 14, 1929, members of Bugs Moran´s North Side gang arrived at a warehouse on North Clark Street in Chicago, only to be approached by several police officers. The officers then marched them outside up against a wall, pulled out submachine guns and shotguns, and gunned them all down on the spot. A famous legend is that one of the shot men, Frank Gusenberg, dying from 14 gunshot wounds, told police that nobody shot him. Though Gusenberg´s statement is probably apocryphal, nobody opened their mouths. Nobody was ever convicted for the ´´Saint Valentine´s Day Massacre,´´ the most famous gangland hit in American history, but it´s an open secret that it was the work of America´s most famous gangster, Al Capone. Indeed, ´´Scarface´´ has captured the nation´s popular imagination since Prohibition, managing to be the most notorious gangster in America while living a very visible and high profile life in Chicago. Born a Brooklyn tough, Capone engaged in a life of crime even as a teenager and had come to Chicago as a young man to smuggle liquor during Prohibition. Allying himself with Johnny Torrio, Capone began to accumulate power almost as quickly as he accumulated a reputation for being merciless, and after an attempted hit severely injured Torrio, Capone´s rise to gangland supremacy was ensured. 1.
