About this book

Snow Bodies is a memoir of a young woman's life on the streets of Calgary and Vancouver in the early 1970s, in the vein of Evelyn Lau's Runaway: Diary of a Street Kid. From her own harrowing experience Elizabeth Hudson graphically renders the deadly underbelly of society and her descent into the abyss of drug addiction and prostitution. In direct prose, without fear, shame or explanation, and without imposing hindsight or societal values onto her narrative, Hudson takes the reader with her on a terrifying journey to the bottom. Snow Bodies is a heartbreaking reminder of the horrors occurring daily on Canada's city streets.
