review 1: As an old folkie from the 60's, I had heard of Joe Hill off and on. However, I had no real knowledge of his life and times. This was an excellent research and description of Joe Hill's life, and certainly showed the corruption of the Utah State government in prosecuting and executing Joe for a murder he did not commit. I'm not so certain all that much has changed in our system. A very enjoyable read.
review 2: Bill has done an excellent job in uncovering new material about Hill and thereby creating a much more accurate portrait of this noted Wobbly.

... morehe basis of this book, Hill deserves renewed attention concerning his life and works and his execution by firing squad in Utah. Beyond that, this should be considered to be the definitive Hill biography. It is well-written and engaging. (I assisted in researching this book, especially about Hill's childhood and youth in his native Sweden.) less
