1 Temple-Raston, Dina A Death in Texas - A Story of Race, Murder, and a Small Town's Struggle for Redemption
New York Henry Holt 2002 0805066527 / 9780805066524 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Near Fine 
A near Fine copy (would be Fine apart from a mark to rear endpaper) with near Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. Stated First edition, first printing. Before 1998 few Americans had ever heard of Jasper, Texas but that all changed on June 7 when a trio of young white men chained a 49 year old black man named James Byrd Jr. to the bumper of a truck and dragged him three miles down a country road. In the hours after Byrd's body was found in pieces on Huff Creek Road, Jasper's community tried not to believe that one of their own had committed such a terrible crime, but within 24 hours Sheriff Billy Rowles had arrested the trio and charged them with murder. From the initial investigation through the trials and their aftermath, the book follows the turn of events through the eyes of Billy Rowles - an enlightened lawman determined to take lessons from the tragedy - and other townspeople trying to come to grips with the crime. 42 illustrations.
