This book takes place in Michigan. Richard Prangley's father was actually the mayor of Grandville. Richard was unjustly institutionalized from the age of 6 until he turned 21 at Coldwater State Home and Training School, a mental institution, because "he was a real handful."

back cover - Mr. Prangley's story has been the focus of a documentary and wide national media coverage including CBS's Sunday Morning with Charles Kuralt. He is an inspirational figure whose life reflects the human spirit at its resilient, triumphant best. this book tells the complete story, from his commitment, his struggles with socialization after being released at age 21, to his successful stand for the rights of the handicapped as a lobbyist in the Michigan State Capitol and the White House.
