Description

The Minnesota Connection by Al Palmquist with John Stone, "A Terrifying Story of Teenaged Prostitution and a Preacher-Cop Determined to Stop It." Copyright 1978 by Bible Voice, Inc.

This is sold as a true story involving the "pipeline" of underage girls forced into prostitution by pimps in Minnesota -- then pushed on to New York. In reality, studies at the time indicate this was not the problem it was said to be. Neither the number of young women, nor the "connection" to New York. Like today's tales of horrors, the facts didn't get in the way of selling a story.

Al Palmquist was the preacher-cop Billy Graham follower who founded Midwest Challenge, trafficking and slavery of any kind is horrible, but after that, the story gets sensationalized -- both to sell books and an agenda.

If you're into the history of white sex slavery, sold with a manipulative and exploitative nature (not unlike the "true" but busted sex trafficking stories of today), this is a book for your collection.

Mass market paperback book; 144 pages.

Believed to be a first edition.

Conditions: Modest signs of age / wear, including scuffs on covers. Pages starting to tan due to age, but otherwise crisp and clean. No writing or rips. Binding is sound. Collectible and readable conditions

I ordered this piece as an early Mother's Day gift for my mother, and I was blown away by the detail of the ice chips hanging from the glass in the background. As an emotional buyer, I immediately knew this would be worth the purchase. This piece is absolutely beautiful, and my mother loves it more than any gift (perfumes) I've gotten her over the past years. This is the perfect decorative piece for our dining room, and I plan to find more additions from Deanna's store in the future. Not to mention, Ms. Deanna was super responsive and communicative throughout the whole shipment. I will definitely be recommending her store to my friends! Thank you so much, Deanna!
