Manson: The Unholy Trail of Charlie and the Family
This is a revised version of The Garbage People. It’s a very readable account with loads of interviews and research behind it. The story is told with lots of direct quotes from key characters, which makes the reader feel like they’re there. Originally published in 1971, The Garbage People was one of the first good books written about these tragic events. A definite must read!
Book Description: The persona of Charles Manson and his bizarre sway over the Family remains riveting a quarter century down the line. Manson is a gripping account of one of the most chilling and fascinating crime sagas of our time, now available in a revised and updated edition containing 36 pages of previously unpublished photographs. New vectors into the kaleidoscopic tale that spins inexorably out of the slayings emerge in this updated edition with new material on killer Bobby Beusoleil and his occult alliance with experimental filmmaker Kenneth Anger.
