This is a narrative history of the John Birch Society, told through the memoirs of Claire Conner, a woman growing up in one of the founding fathers' homes. Both Claire's mother and father were deeply involved Birchers, and Claire herself became the society's youngest member when she was pushed by her parents to join the society at 13 years old. Through this up close and personal look at the organization, we see how this radical movement of the 60s resonates eerily with the causes championed by the Republican Presidential candidates and the Tea Party today.
