The Colony

Faith and Blood in a Promised Land

"THE COLONY is one of the most gripping and disturbing true stories I've ever come across...This is far more than the usual true crime book; it is a deep historical exploration of evil.  I could not put THE COLONY down."

Douglas Preston, author of The Lost City of the Monkey God

"...Denton could hold a conference all her own and discuss how to take heat and still survive in a hostile climate. She is the television reporter who took on the Kentucky power structure." Las Vegas Sun, 1983.

Sally Denton is an investigative reporter, author, and historian who writes about the subjects others ignore--from a drug conspiracy in Kentucky to organized crime in Las Vegas; from corruption within the Mormon Church to the hidden history of Manifest Destiny; from one of America's bitterest political campaigns to the powerful forces against Franklin D. Roosevelt. She has an extensive background in print and broadcast, as well as magazine and book writing.

Sally Denton is the author of nine books, including bestseller The Bluegrass Conspiracy, and the coauthor of a classic account of Las Vegas, The Money and the Power.

"Meticulously researched…. The author couldn’t have found a more bizarro clan to profile than the LeBarons, whose history of murdering family members, mental illness and incest rivals that of the Hapsburgs…. Denton provides an excellent history of a polygamist subculture… [her] book is a testament to what happens when male power, under the guise of religious conviction, goes unchecked."
Julia Scheeres, New York Times Book Review

"A mesmerizing deep dive into Mormon fanaticism, violence, deceit, mental illness, and misogyny, dating back to the religion’s mid-19th century founding by Joseph Smith."
Lewis Beale, The Daily Beast
