A highly anticipated follow up to the history-making anthologies TWO WORLDS (Book One) and CALLED HOME (Book Two): Lost Children of the Indian Adoption Projects series, STOLEN GENERATIONS: Survivors of the Indian Adoption Projects and 60s Scoop offers more narratives on the history of land-taking and child theft/adoption projects in the name of Manifest Destiny in North America. These narratives make clear that Lost Children are not only survivors but resilient.
A collection of adoptees’ firsthand accounts and the historical background of the Indian Adoption Projects and 60s Scoop, along with pertinent news, history, documentaries, quotes and bibliography, this stunning new anthology has been edited by award winning journalist, adoptee-author Trace L Hentz (formerly DeMeyer).
"Stolen Generations" is available now in the Kindle Store. It is available here.

I am honored to be editor of this new anthology, to know these adoptees (or their relative who wrote an essay) and to work with them. Their stories will amaze you, make you cry, make you proud and best of all, this collection writes new truth, new history, blazing new ground!
After doing two earlier anthologies, WE are survivors and WE are resilient. That I know.
Ebook proceeds will benefit the IronEagleFeather Project for adoptees. Levi and I are creating a safe haven and workshops for adoptees...
