Fortney Road: Afterword

 

 

 

Why Charles "Tex" Watson
Wrote the Afterword

An afterward to Fortney Road has been written by Charles "Tex" Watson, a member of Charles Manson's "family" who is serving a life sentence for the 1969 Tate-La Bianca murders.

The Manson Family was the American public's first exposure to a cult and Watson's commentary on the events told in Fortney Road make for a compelling coda to this story.

This is Watson's only published statement about the Manson crimes and the proliferation of cults since his 1978 book, Will You Die For Me? The Man Who Killed For Charles Manson Tells His Own Story.
