Inside Polygamy: Life in Bountiful

Inside Polygamy: Life in Bountiful
It's a real-life "Big Love." Winston Blackmore is the family patriarch and leader of a fundamentalist Mormon polygamist community in Bountiful, British Columbia, that includes his 20-some wives and more than 100 children. Winston, like all who practice "the principle," believes that plural marriage and siring dozens of children will help guarantee his entrance into the highest of Heavens.
