Each year an estimated 100,000 children experience the trauma of being "stolen." Twenty percent of these children will never be heard from again. These children are not kidnapped by strangers. They are snatched by one of their divorced or separated parents. Often they are taken violently; sometimes they are taken at gunpoint; occasionally lives are lost. And always, a parent is left behind struggling with a legal system that prefers to look the other way.The Child Snatchers explores this widespread social problem, a problem that crosses all boundaries, in a deeply personal way, with insight and compassion. Part One is a true story that dramatizes the seemily inpenetrable maze the vicious act of child snatching erects. Part Two is an extensive information and resource guide that shows a clearer path through this maze.--Back cover.
