Plainfield: Logos International, 1979. xi, 288p., illustrated with press, military and family snapshot photography, and seventy pages of documents in facsimile. Pocket original, 7 x 4.25 inch decorated glossy wraps, extremities slightly worn, cover has a crease, several former ownership tags on the first leaf, still and all a bright clean copy.
First-person narrative by a man remote from the scene trying to get his family out --and as such, not all that informative. Ghostwriter Wead was chosen by publisher Logos, says Kerns. Logos may do intelligence duty; their boy Wead flacks for the right wing, see Wead's 1998 book, "George Bush Man of Integrity," and other approving biographies of James Watt and Ronald Reagan. Kerns says he was in the military during the People's Temple era, had a secret clearance (he had something to do with Nike missile production or emplacements) and tried to get his family out of Guyana. Another hapless military family caught in a vortex.
