In 1899, a bounty hunter kidnapped two young boys from their home and sold them as “freaks” to a traveling circus. The albino boys—born to black parents—were touted as “Ecuadorian cannibals” and “ambassadors from Mars.” After a 28-year hunt, their heroic mom found them. Join award-wining journalist Beth Macy who wrote this amazing story in her national nonfiction bestseller, Truevine.
