Top Customer Reviews
Sam Brower, the author is PI who tracked Jeffs down (because of his own sense of justice in regards to the way children were treated by Jeffs) and uncovered a lot of damning evidence against him. The story is briskly paced, very exciting, and provides a good look into the way Private Investigators carry out their work. There is a fair amount of unsavory detail regarding the FLDS practices, particularly with the multiple child brides and intimidation tactics used by the group leaders, so beware that that's included but it is necessary to explain just why Jeffs deserves to be punished. A fascinating, thrilling true story and a great companion to Krakauer's earlier book.
A good insightful view of how these people are brainwashed and beliefs that are sick to many.
The more woman is like a rancher with cattle , the more you have the more important they are (only in their own minds ).
The MORMONS that live by you , and not Colorado City are not the 'good family people :" they portray themselves to be . !
This is a long book intertwining many stories about short creek, colorado, and in between, small clusters of followers trying to get away from the FLDS string hold. Only a fraction are successful. Bless this private detective for all his hard work but it could have. Been Pared down. I skipped through many pages towards the end.
Read survivor stories instead. Escape. Stolen innocence, lost boys. All very good. Brave people who gave up everything, just to have the privilege of watching tv, wearing jeans, or choosing who to marry.
