Summary
"In November 1978, the Reverend Jim Jones orchestrated the murders and suicides of 918 people at a remote jungle outpost in South America. Days later, Harvey Milk, one of America's first openly gay elected officials--and a vocal supporter of Jim Jones--is assassinated in San Francisco's City Hall. Almost immediately, the lives and deaths of Jim Jones and Harvey Milk became shrouded in myth. Now, forty years later, this book, the product of a decade of research, including extensive archival work and dozens of exclusive interviews, clarifies our understanding."--Provided by publisher
