Product description

Review

“This painful memoir . . . delivers a truthful and ultimately empowering missive about the long shadow cast by an abusive parent.”—Publishers Weekly

"For fans of Tara Westover's EducatedThe Pale-Faced Lie: A True Story is a disturbing yet captivating memoir of how one man's psychopathic delusions can imprison an entire family . . . an empowering memoir."New York Journal of Books

"A hard-hitting, gut-punch memoir that should be on any reading list about family relationships and abuse, true crime, and Native American culture and interrelationships."Midwest Book Review

“[Crow] has considerable wisdom to impart, and an unexpected ending that will linger in memory. I promise that you've never read a book quite like this one.”—Jeff Guinn, New York Times best-selling author

“Heartbreaking and gut-wrenchingly honest. Anyone with a troubled childhood should read The Pale-Faced Lie. David Crow’s book is proof that hope rises from the ashes.”—Chris Enss, New York Times best-selling author

“A memoir of an extraordinary life that is lifted by extraordinary storytelling. . . . It is emotionally engaging, consistently entertaining, and nearly impossible to put down.”—James Anderson, author of The Never-Open Desert Diner and Lullaby Road

The Pale-Faced Lie is as gripping as some of the best-selling fiction books ever written. David Crow’s amazing true story is hard to read, but even harder to put down. I missed one of my own deadlines because I didn’t want to stop reading!”—Sherry Monahan, award-winning author of The Golden Elixir of the WestTinsel, Tumbleweeds, and Star-Spangled Celebrations; and The Cowboy's Cookbook

The Pale-Faced Lie is a riveting account of a world turned upside down. A very visual, engaging, and well-written book that will make the reader cringe, cry, and cheer for a boy on a treacherous journey to adulthood. Couldn’t put it down.”—Felix F. Giordano, best-selling author of the Jim Buchanan novels

“A dramatic tale of strength, learning, love, and hate. You won’t be disappointed.”—Mark Reps, author, Zeb Hanks: Small Town Sheriff Big Time Trouble series

About the Author

David Crow spent his early years on the Navajo Indian Reservation in Arizona and New Mexico. Through grit, resilience, and a thirst for learning, he managed to escape his abusive childhood, graduate from college, and build a successful lobbying firm in Washington, DC. Today, David is a sought-after speaker, giving talks to various organizations around the world. Throughout the years, he has mentored over 200 college interns, performed pro bono service for the charitable organization Save the Children, and participated in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. An advocate for women, he will donate a percentage of his royalties from "The Pale-Faced Lie" to Barrett House, a homeless shelter for women in Albuquerque. David and his wife, Patty, live in the suburbs of DC.
