The Man Who Never Died

Sep 1, 2014

Almost a century ago, labor icon Joe Hill was executed by firing squad for the murder of a Salt Lake grocer. His controversial conviction rested largely on two pieces of rickety evidence: the gunshot wound he sustained the night of the murder and the IWW membership card in his wallet. The writer William Adler has uncovered evidence debunking the case against Hill. He'll join Doug to talk about his book, The Man Who Never Died. (Rebroadcast)

William Adler's book is called The Man Who Never Died: The Life, Times, and Legacy of Joe Hill, American Labor Icon. [Indiebound|Amazon]
