Description

Alexander Chisholm Guilbault, a native of Guatemala who is now a Canadian living in Nova Scotia, tells the startling story of how he was sold by his uncle at the age of six to an orphanage. Alex escaped, and lived on the dangerous streets of Guatemala City for twelve years. Only when a policeman picked him up was he given a name.

Adopted as a teenager by a Nova Scotia family, Alex ultimately sought out his birth parents. This experience cast a gut-wrenching light on the life of poor families in a poor country.
