Self published work by a convict who served life in prison in Idaho. From the author's introduction- "So, after twelve years behind dead walls, I present this human document to the cold gaze of the critic. This volume does not shine as a literary gem, for my opportunities in life were not such as to develop literary talent. When a boy 13 years of age I drifted out into the world; therefore, what education I have obtained has been from the hard school of experience."
