Description
Tonio Rocciano was just fifteen. Considered "too young" and "too small," no one would hire him. So he robbed a bank to buy a bike. He was caught and sentenced to the state reformatory in Buena Vista in 1947. At seventeen, Tonio was conditionally released. As a Navy frogman, he participated in the Korean invasion at Incheon. Tonio would be discharged for striking an officer who had spat on Tonio. Once he was a civilian, Tonio fought with a man who had called him a nigger. Tonio was incarcerated once again in Buena Vista. An unfortunate event sent Tonio to the Colorado State Penitentiary in Canon City in a cell on death row. Unwind the story of an unexpected life, Tonio's twists, tumbles, and intrigue will draw you into this fascinating account of a multiracial youth finding his way.
