"Stories of South Mountain and its notorious Goler Clan are often told in whispers-or not at all. For over a century, a gruesome pattern of sexual and physical abuse, incest, and psychological torture defined the isolated mountain community, and residents of the nearby Annapolis Valley turned a blind eye. But when a fourteen-year-old South Mountain girl finally spoke up, the story and its ensuing investigation captivated the country. In this twentieth-anniversary edition of the bestselling book the Vancouver Sun called "a terrible story, beautifully told," acclaimed authors David Cruise and Alison Griffiths return to South Mountain with a new Preface and the original, startling text."--

Step over the stile into a world that no one knows exists. A world that overturns everything you know about the goodness of people and creates a mirror image of evil. Five years about I found this true story haunting, today I find it just as compelling. What you will see is the worst catastrophe you can imagine. When a young girl comes into a police station and claims her father is having sex with her, the authorities have no idea how big this situation is and how pervasive it is in the culture of a group of people that call themselves the Goler Clan. And it is not just a single act on one person but a whole series of crimes committed generation to generation. Truly there is no explanation that can be found, no escape from the depravity. The idyllic charm of the Annapolis Valley is penetrated by Evil so strong you can taste as you read. It enters your heart and mind never to let it go.
