About this item

Important Made in USA Origin Disclaimer: For certain items sold by Walmart on Walmart.com, the displayed country of origin information may not be accurate or consistent with manufacturer information. For updated, accurate country of origin data, it is recommended that you rely on product packaging or manufacturer information.
When Jaycee Dugard was eleven years old, she was abducted from a school bus stop within sight of her home in South Lake Tahoe, California. She was missing for more than eighteen years, held captive by Phillip Craig and Nancy Garrido, and gave birth to two daughters during her imprisonment. On August 26, 2009, Garrido showed up for a meeting with his parole officer; he brought Jaycee, her daughters, and his wife Nancy with him. Their unusual behavior raised suspicions and an investigation revealed the tent behind the Garridos' home where Jaycee had been living for nearly two decades.
"A Stolen Life" was written by Jaycee herself and covers the period from the time of her abduction in 1991 up until the present. In her stark, compelling narrative, she opens up about what she experienced--and offers an extraordinary account of courage and resilience.

This book in not for the faint-at-heart. After reading the first few chapters, just before bed, I suffered a terrible nightmare that night. Upon finishing the book, several folks simply did not wish to borrow it due to it's content. I was curious to read this book, because I couldn't imagine...nor fathom anyone (Garridos) as twisted, sinister and pure evil as her captors. I admire Ms. Duggard. She is an angel with a soul strong as steel, who only hours after her abduction, withstood some of the harshest conditions and the most heinous sexual assaults one could ever imagine a child could endure. Overall, a great read if you can emotionally get through it. I wish her and her family all the love, patience and healing GOD will provide!
