MEMBER OF THE FAMILY: Manson, Murder and Me

DIANNE LAKE    Book Number: 87147    Product format: Paperback

"At 14 I became one of Charles Manson's girls. At 17 I helped put him in prison." In late 1967, 14 year old Dianne Lake became one of 'Charlie's Girls', a devoted acolyte of cult leader Charles Manson. For the first time she opens up about her life in the Family - from her counter-cultural upbringing that led to a chance encounter with Manson at a party, to group trips at the infamous hideout Spahn Ranch and the sexual control he exerted over the group, showing how the free-love ethos of the era enabled the charismatic and calculating Manson to take advantage of young women, often to devastating ends. Chapters cover her Minnesota Childhood, California, Hippies in Newsprint, Welcome to Hog Farm, The Black Bus, Panhandling and Postulating, and finally reclaiming her name. "Barker Ranch. It was where we'd hidden out after the murders, in Death Valley, the middle of nowhere and as far away as Charlie could take us. A place where they weren?t supposed to find us. Only they did..." Extraordinarily detailed of how Charles Manson bewitched an entourage of pretty young girls with hippy parents, leaving home for the first time. 384pp, paperback, many photos, colour.
