Summary, etc.:
"Within this heart wrenching yet hope filled autobiographical account of her life, Dr. Sharon L. Acoose (Associate Professor of Indigenous Social Work, First Nations University of Canada) allows us to walk with her, on her healing journey, through what was a life of despair (a life steeped in sexual abuse, family abandonment, life on the street, addictions, prostitution, violence and incarceration), to a fulfilling life grounded within sobriety and personal achievements; of which obtaining her PhD is one. Importantly, Dr. Acoose discusses lessons she learned along the way that may serve as signposts for those who are battling similar demons to the ones she had to overcome."--Publisher.
