Once one of the Manson family, Tex Watson provides an inside view of the manson madness, and his release from his terrifying past through a new life in Christ.
I've read many books on Charles Manson and his cult but they've all glossed over "Tex" Watson, never really giving any information about him. This book lets you see who Tex Watson is and also tells you how it really was living on the ranches with manson. I found out things I didn't know like he met Manson through Beach Boys Dennis Wilson who he picked up after finding Dennis hitchiking. Well worth the read.
Charles (Tex , as renamed by the Manson family) watson. An all american boy from the heart of Texas, goes to California , basically "to sow his wild oats" . Meets a member of the Beach Boys, thus meeting Charles Manson as well. Becomes a member of the Manson Family and is the primary killer of the Tate/LaBianca families. This is his side of this horrifically true tale and his trial and his newfound prison religion.
