Product Overview

For 15 years Rev. Carroll Pickett worked as a chaplain in the Texas penal system, during which he saw 95 men put to death by lethal injection. Compiled here are his memories of his time on death row and of the men whom he supported through their final days, as well as the reasons why his experiences led him to oppose the death penalty as a punishment. The stories reveal the compassion that existed in even the hardest of criminals and provide a behind-the-scenes look into the U.S. prison system itself. Harrowing and moving, this is a unique and sometimes graphic depiction of life on death row.
