Stegner Wallace

Joe Hill

A Biographical Nove

€ 14.95

Wallace 'stegner's remarkable portrait of Joe Hill, the man and the legend :from his entrance into the Industrial Workers of the World union, the most militant organization in the history of American labor, to his trial, imprisonment, and final martyrdom.

Blending fact with fiction, Wallace 'stegner retells the story of Joe Hill--the Wobbly bard who became the stuff of legend when, in 1915, he was executed for the alleged murder of a 'salt Lake City businessman. Organizer, agitator, Labor's 'songster--a rebel from the skin inwards, with an absolute faith in the One Big Union--Joe Hill fought tirelessly in the frequently violent battles between organized labor and industry. But though songs and stories still vaunt him, and his legend continues to inspire those who feel the injustices he fought against, Joe Hill may not have been a saintly crusader and may have been motivated by impulses darker than the search for justice.
