Coping with the emotional and spiritual debris left by her horribly abusive childhood while simultaneously grappling with a seemingly endless parade of crises, Maggie decides its time to change her world by changing herself.
She launches an improbable quest for spiritual rebirth by building a teepee in the woods behind her home in New England. Amidst the tall oaks, clawing blackberry brambles and voracious mosquitoes, she forges her own unique path to salvation. It's not a traditional path, but it's the only path Maggie can follow.
As the teepee goes up, Maggie grows up. Better late than never, she finally frees herself from her haunted past. Her sense of humor lends her strength as she struggles up the rocky road to healing and peace.
At the same time shocking, witty, raw and timely, "The 12-Foot Teepee" will keep you turning pages as Maggie's quixotic journey of self discovery and healing unfolds.
