Snow Bodies: One Woman's Life on the Streets (NeWest $24.95) is Elizabeth Hudson's true story of prostitution and addiction in Calgary and Vancouver in the 1970s. Through an exhausting cycle of turning tricks to get high, Snow Bodies illustrates how female addiction forms the back bone of the drug industry. "At no time was my recovery easy, neat, or clean,"; she recalls. "It was ten years before I stopped thinking about fixing every day. Coming off the street and then trying to live the straight life was like jumping planets and keeping the leap a shameful secret."; Hudson went back to school and graduated with honours from Mount Royal College's Social Service Careers diploma program. 1-896300-74-X
