Overview

David's family lived upright Christian lives as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Then, one day, his father decided to follow another path. Forcing his wife to agree and his family to follow, he joined a polygamist group and left his wife and children to support themselves while he pursued other wives. One Lost Boy is the true story of a boy who, at a young age, was forced into the polygamist culture.

This story depicts the heart-wrenching emotions David experienced as he watched his family leave normal society for the grim and unforgiving polygamist lifestyle. He spent long, hot summers in the polygamist community of Short Creek, Arizona, and during the school year he had to hide his true identity from classmates for fear that his family's secret lifestyle would be discovered. Years prior to his escape he knew he had to get out. Shortly after he turned sixteen the opportunity presented itself, and, with his family and the law close on his heels, he ran.

David's story is a series of life-altering events that shows the importance of faith in times of darkness and affirms the truth that God truly loves and cares for all - even one lost boy.
