ALCOHOLISM, INCEST, CHILD ABUSE, RECOVERY, REALITY THERAPY: This beautiful story is set next to Ute Mountain in Towaoc, Colorado (United States. Clancy, a young Ute Mountain (Native American) boy, lives in a home filled with alcoholism and abuse; but not for long, because dad's behavior forces mom to throw him out of the house. Clancy is all in an uproar, his world is completely shattered, and all the rules are beginning to also change as his family comes in contact with a group of 'helping people' at Social Services. Clancy will do so many things for your own children and family, but one of the greatest gifts Clancy has to offer is the honest sharing of his experience. By sharing his experience, Clancy removes the veil of 'secrecy' which so often shrouds families torn and ripped apart by these kinds of issues. It's no longer something to be ashamed of, but something to travel through in community . . . together. (For more info- www.outofbodytravel.org)
