Peter Andreas on his rebel mother: 'She was negligent but I never felt neglected' By the time Peter Andreas was 11 years old, he had travelled to five countries, and had lived in more than a dozen homes. He was in and out of school. His mother took him on the run, chasing political revolution in South America. She was a Mennonite-turned-Marxist from Kansas. She kidnapped her son twice -- after losing a long custody battle. Peter Andreas with his mother in Lima, Peru, December 1973.
