Not Lost Forever is Carmen Salcido's remarkable story of survival and healing following the 1986 murderous rampage by her father, Mexican immigrant Ramon Salcido in the wine country of Sonoma Valley, California. Left for dead at three years old her throat brutally slashed Carmen miraculously survived what is widely considered one of California's most notorious crimes: the unthinkable attack that savagely destroyed seven innocent lives, including Carmen's entire family. At once a harrowing true crime story and the inspirational first-person account of a young girl's strength, heart, and determination in the nightmare's aftermath, Not Lost Forever is a shocking and profoundly moving tale of perseverance and hope, and of a precious life regained.
