"Ask anyone who knew Marshal Vernon Eggers, Cochilla
Township, Arizona Territory -- he'll tell you Vernon Eggers'
word was always good. Still is, too . . . ," the narrator of
American Spirit assures us, his story so troubling it has
haunted him for almost fifty years.
An Everyman story, a mystery (you be the judge of what really
happened) and a love story, American Spirit extols the moral
victory of one man, Mort Lewis, brought to trial in 1878 on the
American Fontier for a capital crime he didn't know wether
he committed or not.The Author, John Janda
