“North of Normal” by Cea Sunrise Person
Sex, drugs and . . . bug stew? An utterly compelling tale of survival-of nature, family and genetics. In the late 1960s, riding the crest of the counterculture movement, Cea”s family left a comfortable existence in California to live off the land in northern Alberta. But unlike most commune dwellers of the time, the Persons weren”t trying to build a new society-they wanted to escape civilization altogether. Led by Cea”s grandfather Dick, they lived in a canvas Teepee, grew pot, and hunted and gathered to survive. Cea’s astonishing saga is one of long-held family secrets and extreme family dysfunction, all in an incredibly unusual setting. It is also the story of one girl”s deep-seated desire for normality-a desire that enabled her to risk everything, overcome adversity and achieve her dreams.
