Description

For two decades in Long Beach, California, August Hunter operates as one of the city's most powerful gang lords. But as his life alternates between the violence of the streets and the brutality of the California prison system, Hunter struggles in his heart and mind with the senselessness of the gang scene. Hunter finally surrenders to the greater forces that have been at work in his life, and he encounters the real "Lord of Long Beach." The book reads like a modern-day urban Exodus, from his bitter childhood in the housing projects of New Orleans, to his move with his mother to Long Beach and his rise through the youth gangs, to the pinnacle of his power in the adult gangs and the suffering of three prison terms, and finally to his emotional collapse and rebirth. Hunter's story is a valuable one-for young men and women at risk on the streets, for those in our prisons and jails who find little hope there, and for anyone seeking to make a stronger connection between their everyday life and their faith.
