In the throes of the depression, America's heartland lay under seige to gangsters. When John Dillinger and Baby-Face Nelson slipped through the police barricade at Little Bohemia, Wisconsin in 1934, Hoover picked a former missionary from Preston, Idaho to lead the government assault on Chicago-area gangs: Sam Cowley.
Here is a window to Sam Cowley's life—his selfless partiotism, courage, and leadership. Reading this book, you'll come to know a friend and a hero worthy of the title—a hero for the ages. And you'll have one blazing story worth telling around the campfire—a scoutmaster's classic.
