--Since, I watch a lot of true crime shows, I started seeing shows about the horrific abuses in the polygamous FLDS cult years ago. Every time I would see a show, I would write down the books and authors that were mentioned on the show.
--Recently, I started reading one of the books and I was hooked and wanted to learn more. So far, I have read the following books and done posts on them:
6) Stolen Innocence--Elissa Wall
7) Lost Boy--Brent W. Jeffs
8) The Polygamists: A History of Colorado City, Arizona--Benjamin Bistline
--As I've learned more, especially after reading Flora Jessop's book, I wanted to see some of the people I was reading about. So, I found some good documentaries online.
--When I'm finished with all of the books, and when I'm done researching, I will do a comprehensive post on the FLDS.
--It is important to educate people about what is going on. As I was talking about this at work, a friend just assumed I was talking about a group in a third world country. I said, no, this is going on right here in the U.S.
