5.0 out of 5 stars The Forgotten, November 2, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Prisoners: Murder, Mayhem, and Petit Larceny (Paperback)
They stare back from the dead. Some have those glassy bloodshot eyes eyes filled with sin. The eyes are the first thing that struck me. Those creepy glassy eyes as though they've been in some smoke filled room (Hell's Furnace ?). You can almost smell their clothing and their body odor. You have seen them they look like the people that bum money from you at the Gas Station. Almost all wear crumpled hats and most wear ties with their greasy rags. These photo's were taken at the turn of the last century. These were tough hardscrabble people who founded our state. It took people like these tame California back then. These definitely are not sissys or wussies. Their stories are interesting a spurned lover a homesick boy. These stories bring to me an interest in early California. I found myself looking up Maryville / Yuba Ca. This book shows the real side of California back then. A time where rough people lived in a rough town.
