Under the Banner of Heaven

On top, the flat summit plateau feels like a lost world - an island in the sky, cut off from civilization, sprouting manzanita and mariposa lilies, wild roses and yucca, Indian paintbrush and stout ponderosa pines. "My brother David and I used to sneak up here every chance we got when we were kids," says DeLoy Bateman. "Seemed like the only place where the religion couldn't control us."
