This memoir tells the story of a life driven by alcohol addiction, a journey which ultimately led the author to incarceration in a California prison for multiple convictions of drunk driving. Mr. Garth describes his misconceptions and fears before entering jail, sarcastically nicknamed Camp Snoopy, the sometimes harrowing experiences he had inside, the unexpected friendships he made, and the surprising things he learned that would change his life.
