To Build a Castle: My Life as a Dissenter

by Vladimir Bukovsky

A major document in the literature of human rights, this now-legendary memoir, by one of the most prominent of the Soviet-era Russian dissidents, was a world-wide bestseller when first published in 1978.At the age of 20, as punishment for his political protests, Vladimir Bukovsky was falsely declared insane and committed to a psychiatric hospital—standard practice for communism's critics in 1963. But the quack doctors and brutal guards who kept him captive didn't realize: Bukovsky wasn't locked up with them.

But he also recounts how he found his inner truth and strength, and built...

The Brave River

by Steven C. Westfield

“Have you ever wanted to be a hero to someone?”In 2008, Steve Westfield walked away from his comfortable life in the suburbs, heading for the violence and chaos of the United States/Mexico border, not knowing what he would encounter when he got there.

Dead, Insane, or in Jail: A CEDU Memoir

by Zack Bonnie

Zack Bonnie was fourteen when his parents sent him to a "Troubled Teen" facility. The author takes readers there, in a thrilling psychological read. Sequestered where bizarre cult-like techniques become the norm, see for yourself exactly what the controversy is about. Should we mold a child's behavior using the tools of brainwashing? With coarse, brutal dialog and authentic source materials, this nonfiction memoir, the first in a series, exposes the secrets and tells it all.Dead, Insane, or in Jail: A CEDU Memoir is named for the range of options open to the author at 14, if he ran away from the cult his parents inadvertently inducted him into. This is the first time he has told his story. And it’s a doozy. Too many people can relate to this account, unfortunately. Although Rocky Mountai...

Expression. My Cancer: a Gut Feeling.

by Kerry O'Brien

Reading a book about an individual's journey with a terminal bowel cancer diagnosis would ordinarily seem to be a rather depressing read. However, Kerry's light-hearted sense of humour and unending positivity and love of life shines through in her writing.  In this very personal book, Kerry overcomes the stigma of talking openly about the symptoms and treatments for bowel cancer: there are graphic descriptions of some of the intimate details of bodily (mal)functions; reflections on her research into what may have contributed to her diagnosis and nutritional and other lifestyle changes she has found helpful.

I Learned to Dance In Reform School

by H.L. McCall

This book tells about my path to the Vocational School for Girls, in Helena, Montana, in the early 1950s, and my experiences with the staff and residents there. I had basically raised myself, and become a survival-oriented "street kid", selfish and emotionally stunted. At the School, I encountered Ruby Miller, the Administrator, who saw potential in me, and took me under her wing, probably more than she should have, with the limitations on staff-resident relationships being strict. Ruby ran the school not as a prison, but in a way that humanized her charges - she was accused by the Governor of "running a girls' finishing school". But she stood her ground, and introduced me, and the other girls, to real food, music, the stage, and caring emotions. I fell in love with her, and called he...
