A dramatic account of the terrible pain and suffering the author’s sister inflicted on him in her attempt to become the sole heir to the family’s $300,000 estate

PENTICTON, B.C., Canada – August 23 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Author Gordon Baker, announced today the release of his book, Desperate To Survive (ISBN: 1-59526-011-0). Based on a true story, this book gives a dramatic account of the terrible pain and suffering the author’s sister inflicted on him, in her attempt to become the sole heir to the family’s $300,000 estate.

Desperate To Survive begins when the author’s sister steals her mother’s Will. Upon reading it, she discovers it’s not in her favor. As the days go by, she becomes obsessed with the content until a rage has built up inside of her. She then sets in motion a chain of events that in the end overwhelm her brother financially, physically and emotionally. With very little money left the brother can no longer afford a lawyer, he then looses the power of attorney his mother granted him and he is unable to continue looking after his mother or her estate. The sister continues her assault until she has him evicted from the family home.

The brother now finds himself physically weak, emotionally distraught and homeless. It is mid January 2004 and he only has his truck to live in just as one of the coldest winters in 20 years is taking hold in the Sudbury area of Northern Ontario.

For the eight long weeks, he had to endure what can only be described as, hell on earth as the winter temperatures plunged to minus 40 degrees. With hardly any heat, very little food, only snow for water and no way to wash himself or his clothes, the days became almost unbearable to the point where he considered ending his life. He was not a religious man but during the darkest times, he bowed his head and prayed.

When finally found, he then had to endure embarrassment and humiliation only to emerge and find himself trapped in hell itself: the dark and dangerous world of drugs. In the end, the author was left in total financial and moral ruin.

The ordeal Gordon Baker went through has left him changed and scared forever. Everything he owned, his father’s possessions and some of his mothers that were to be inherited are gone. He is a long way from the home he knew, now in a strange part of the country and more alone than he has ever been in his life. As this book goes to press, the author is in a desperate fight to survive.

Book will be released approximately early September, 2005.
