An Unexpected Life

By: Tonio Rocciano

About the Book

Tonio Rocciano was just fifteen. Considered “too young” and “too small,” no one would hire him. So he robbed a bank. He was caught and sentenced to the state reformatory in 1947.

                At seventeen, Tonio was conditionally released. As a Navy frogman he participated in the Korean invasion at Inchon. Tonio would be discharged for striking an officer.

                Once he was a civilian, Tonio fought with a man who had called him a racial slur; Tonio was incarcerated once again in Buena Vista. An unfortunate event sent Tonio to the Colorado State Penitentiary in Canon City in a cell on Death Row. The truth is yet to be known.

                Unwind the story of An Unexpected Life: Tonio’s twists, tumbles and intrigue will draw you into this fascinating account of a multiracial youth finding his way.
