Orville was a simple man who never wavered from what he saw...shooters on the Grassy Knoll ahead and to the right of the President. His film showed that area clearly, and is still today perhaps the best existing photographic record with the Knoll in the background.
She takes you along on her grandfather's journey, and lets you know what it was (is?) like to publicly disagree with a story the government is determined to sell at all costs.
The book is more than a personal retrospective though. It also contains a wealth of details and information of the bigger picture surrounding what happened that day.
I would highly recommend this work. While it was never intended to solve the case, it does open doors that allow the reader to step into the shoes of an honest man who didn't want to doubt what his government said and did, but wound up with no choice after his experiences. I think this is an important book that fills in previously unknown gaps in the assassination story.
It's interesting, compelling, and a worthwhile read.
At last we have a Kennedy assassination book written by a relative of a first person witness that is well written, thought-provoking, and intelligent.
Gayle Nix Jackson, the granddaughter of Orville Nix, weaves a compelling tale of what happened to her grandfather before, during and after he photographed the assassination from the opposite side of Abraham Zapruder’s position. Additionally we have the extraordinary mystery of what happened to this now missing film as it wound its way through time?
With the advent of better technology one can only wonder what the original film contains in the shadows. Copies show it reveals the area of the purported position of several shooter locations behind the picket fence. Since the original images could resolve issues related to conspiracy it remains a crucial piece of lost history. And this story of the man and his vanished film is well worth reading.
government. It has never been important to know the names of the men who pulled the triggers as much as those whose were complicit in covering up them doing so.
