The Mountain Within
Frances Sinclair-Kaspick, author
Canadian, Out of trauma, born physically disAbled, North American Indian. Born into poverty, raised in a large single parent home by my Grandmother. Growing up in an unsafe neighborhood, dodging preditors, addictions, my biggest fear, I'd either succumb to the lifestyle or never make it out of the jungle. My story talks of humble early beginnings and striving to become fiercely independent. Becoming self-sufficient as a young adult, was a great relief and feeling to know, "I'm going to make it in life after all!"
