Inspirational true story of a boy escaping the clutches of a cult, homelessness, emotional decimation, and rampant drug abuse.
The story of surviving on the streets, completely without family, friends or hope. The story of how to overcome against all odds; of will to carry on.
Born into Scientology, Nathan resisted indoctrination from the start. Eventually he was sent to the cult’s infamously abusive Mace-Kingsley Ranch, at age eight. He was sent again to the ranch at age fourteen, where he was not allowed contact with his family for nearly three years. After finally getting away, his family disowned him.
He lived for seven long years homeless and without hope. Drugs, violence and despair plagued his mind until he was finally able to rise out of the gutter, face his past and live in the present.
From wild LSD experiences to gangs and past life recall, Nathan bears all in this brutally open memoir.
"Scythe Tleppo is a roller coaster ride between these moments of clarity and one shocking scene after another told in brutal detail about the ways Nathan was abused, the ways he abused himself, and his ever downward spiral to homelessness and near-suicidal drug use."
