Re-released in a new format, this is a horrifying but true story of life in State institutions for children in Australia.

I drew my knees up and huddled in the corner. How the hell did I get myself into this mess? I kept askin myself. Brutal is every boy's worst nightmare, come true for Al 'Crow' Fletcher. It is the harrowing, true story of life inside one of Queenslands most feared institutions for orphaned, disadvantaged and Aboriginal youth. Thousands of children spent their formative years in fear and misery. All were scarred by the experience. Some perished. Many graduated to adult institutions. Crow Fletcher survived to tell his tale. This is it. Foreword by Senator Andrew Murray, Senator for Western Australia
