After political parties become two polar opposites, civil war ensues and splits the country. No longer can someone drive to a department store or a fast food restaurant. Fossil fuels dry up, leaving vehicles inoperable and commuters forced to find ways to survive at home. Those who couldn't, died, and those who could found themselves in a simpler life. When survival was the only sign of wealth needed, no one worried about whose car was nicer or who had the newest phone or sneakers. Peoples' word and name became tradable commodities. That was until the Raiders rose to power. The closest thing to a military left in the United States, they existed only to bully, rape, and murder those who, just a few years earlier, had been their own countrymen. As Clay and his friends get more and more enemies in the states, they decide to run to the territory and start over.
Rachel Gifford, nationally renowned diabetes educator and speaker, shares her story of living with diabetes from both sides of the exam table. A Gift in Wolf's Clothing begins when she diagnoses herself with her older sister's diabetes urine testing kit, and her initial reaction of, "Death makes more sense than trying to live with this disease." Over time she arrives at the conclusion that if she cannot kill herself to escape diabetes, she'll have to learn how to live with it! Living with diabetes takes her into a career of helping people with diabetes to hopefully, have an easier time of it than she did. This is a story of adventurous learning, that will bring you to tears, make you laugh out loud, and help you find your own spirit of tenacity in dealing with the "Wolves" life may have brought your way. "Reading A Gift in Wolf's Clothing has made me a better doctor..." Charles Reasner M.D, Professor of Medicine and Medical Director of the Texas Diabetes Institute, University of Texas Health Sciences Center in San Antonio
