Card covers show shelf wear, minor creasing, pages slightly yellowed.; A tight solid book. ; Mass Market PB; B&W Photographs; 6.80 X 4.10 X 0.80 inches; 322 pages; "A sensitive and candid inside account of the struggles of the Dionne quintuplets, from "million-dollar babies" to impoverished adults, and their ultimate triumph in the battle for compensation after years of exploitation. The miracle babies -- to this day the world's only surviving identical quintuplets -- were raised in a compound separated from their family and put on display for thousands of tourists. In addition to the personal struggles the three remaining sisters candidly relate, 'The Dionnes' recounts the stories of their friends, families, lawyers, supporters, and legions of admirers. 'The Dionnes' is a tale of humanity and courage, of family feuding and family solidarity, and of the long and painful road to justice."
