Bloodline The Book

Torn from a good life with a loving extended family in 1960s Alabama, young John Turnipseed ended up in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with empty cupboards and a cruel father he no longer recognized. A. B. Turnipseed’s alcoholism and womanizing started a chain reaction of poverty, violence, addiction, and despair that nearly destroyed three generations. From lost and frightened little boy—to gang leader, drug dealer, and pimp—to one of the nation’s most respected pioneers of community restoration, John Turnipseed tells his amazing story of transformation with honesty and courage. He offers contagious hope to all who read it.
