Image of item
CD Audiobook

CD ; unabridged ed.

Reveals the untold history of the infamous American leprosy colony on Molokai and the extraordinary people who struggled to survive under the most horrific circumstances. Tracked by bounty hunters and torn screaming from their families, the luckles were loaded into shipboard cattle stalls and abandoned in a lawless place where brutality held sway. Many did not have leprosy, and most of those whodid were not contagoius, yet all were caught in a shared nightmaer. The colony hadl little food, little medicine, and very little hope. Exile continued for more than a century, the logest and deadliest instance of medical segregation in American history. Nearly 9,000 people were banished to the colony, trapped by pounding surf and armed guards and the highest sea cliffs in the world. 28 live there still.
