Synopsis: This is a story that combines tommy guns and Dillinger-era bank robbers with a mystery worthy of the hit show "America's Most Wanted." Roger Snortland, for years the venerated coach of a high school in rural North Dakota, comes to terms with his convict father's bitter legacy in "From Graystone to Tombstone." This haunting memoir will keep you riveted, as the unlikely little town of Tolna becomes the focus of national headlines and interstate manhunts. You'll read true accounts from a draconian, brutal penitentiary -- complete with verbatum prison rules demanding silence, obedience and forced marching to the chow line. Then, harshness and abuse from prison experience is heaped upon children of tender age, as Roger Snortland's dad tries to make ends meet back on the farm. Later, you'll follow the winding trail of a troubled sibling who turns his gun at the father he loves and hates at the same time. The reader will emerge from this book with a towering respect for the author, a man who endured pain, grief and needless guilt -- but who learned the art of forgiving and writes in the spirit of hope.
