Attorney Will Lee has returned to his roots to kick off his campaign for the Senate. He has come back to his hometown of Delano, Georgia, to plan his strategies, and to argue a case that has the potential to seriously damage his political career.

But Will Lee isn''t about to back down, even though it may cost him his career--and his life.
From the Publisher:
A Southern lawyer with political aspirations defends a white man accused of raping a black woman, and finds himself the target of a fiery TV evangelist and murderous white supremacists.
"We feel [Gruchow's] losses as our own. Images and lessons from his childhood are examined in frank and sometimes elegiac prose....These essays include surprises, such as a vivid bear story and a riveting visit to West Bend, Iowa. Collectively they are part of a shared discussion through which we try to understand how a society that purports to have it all is destroying all there is....Throughout these essays the reader will find ingredients for a fluid recipe for sustainable community." - Liz Caile May/June 96
