I was completely wrapped up I in the lives of these families who struggled to make a living in Kansas for so many years.
I must admit I had compassion for Richard,
This is a true crime story of the abduction and death of an 8-year-girl. This took place in 1932 ... by a repeat offender.
BOOK BLURB: Based on true events, this account takes a deep dive into the psycho-social complexities of pioneer times and their impact on this particular crime and the justice meted out to the perpetrator.
Starting with year 1881, the stories of the victims and the families involved, it showcases how abuse .. both mental and physical ... personalities .... social distancing all factored into the criminal and his crimes. Historic events are lived as daily news by the seven families whose lives become intertwined.
Written in chronological order, I found it hard to get into the meat of the story. There are so many lives involved, it was somewhat difficult to follow ... sort of like Genesis' who begat who that goes on and on and on. Its a tragic story in that the victim is so young. In some ways the killer is also a victim. That is for the reader to decide ...
Many of the things that happened in the book were based on newspapers of the time and not conjecture. Actual events formed likely and probable scenarios that were used to bring the story to life, but the telling was meant to be personal, not through a blow by blow factual method. The family stories were true and drawn from research and interviews.
