New York: E. P. Dutton, 1971. First printing. One map. Full cloth. Octavo. 412 pages. Very good in a near fine dust jacket. Bound in dark blue cloth over boards with white spine titling, decorated endpapers. Browning to textblock. No significant wear to jacket.
How a group of young people became welded together into a warlike clan that brutally killed. Includes a chapter on the connection between Manson and The Process--Church of the Final Judgement. This chapter was deleted in subsequent printings when the Church sued the publisher. A memo to that effect is tipped in at the front endpapers.
