About the Author

David Thibodeau (Author) David Thibodeau was born and raised in Maine. He is one of only four Branch Davidians who survived the Waco, Texas massacre who was not sentenced to prison. Over the twenty-five years since, David has lived in Los Angeles, California; Austin, Texas; and currently lives in Bangor, Maine, where he continues his life as a drummer and entrepreneur. David is a life-long student of history and is always anxious to see where "my country is headed by not heeding the lessons of the past."


"This narrative defies many of our media-mediated preconceptions of Koresh's followers."
"Thibodeau, one of only four Branch Davidians to live through the Waco disaster and not be sentenced to jail, has produced a surprisingly balanced and honest account of his time as a Branch Davidian. Neither sensationalist nor defensive, this will make satisfying reading for anyone interested in the April 1993 tragedy."
--Kirkus Review
"An extraordinary account of one of the most shameful episodes in recent American history. I wish that everyone in the country could read this book."
--Howard Zinn
"This book gives a rare glimpse of life at Mount Carmel and an account of how that attack contrasts with the 'official' government version. With the renewed interest in this siege, this book is recommended for public libraries."
--School Library Journal
"A disquieting portrait of a religious community and its enigmatic leader."
--Kirkus Reviews
"Honest... [about] whether the excessive force used by our government against American citizens was really necessary."--Lincoln Star Journal
