Troy, Mich. (Jan. 2007) - Death's Door: The Truth Behind Michigan's Largest Mass Murder by Steve Lehto has been named to the Library of Michigan's 2007 Michigan Notable Books list.
Each year, the Library of Michigan chooses the 20 best new books reflecting Michigan's rich cultural heritage, featuring high-quality titles with wide public appeal that are either written by a Michigan resident or about a Michigan-related topic. "These books tell the stories of Michigan - defining our home as a place rich with spirit, history and inspiration - and they reaffirm Michigan as a wellspring of literary energy, creativity and unique voices," said State Librarian Nancy R. Robertson.
Death's Door is the most accurate account of the 1913 Italian Hall tragedy that struck a Michigan copper mining town during an intense labor strike. Author Steve Lehto uncovers the facts behind what songwriter Woody Guthrie called the "1913 Massacre."
Historian and attorney Steve Lehto has been featured in media across Michigan and Wisconsin including: WJR Detroit with Warren Pierce; WDIV Detroit Morning Powercast; WRIF Detroit with Peter Werbe, Michigan Public Radio; Milwaukee Journal Sentinel; Flint Sunday Journal; and Lake Superior magazine.
