Salt of the Earth: A Mother, A Daughter, A Murder by Jack Olsen

Pulls you along irresistibly. - The New York Times <BR> The powerful, absorbing true story of the terror and tragedy that stalks our violent land, and how an ordinary woman triumphed over all of it.--Joseph Wambaugh <BR>Joe Gere said he died on the afternoon his twelve-year-old daughter Brenda disappeared. It was left to Brendas mother Elaine to sustain her stricken family, search for her missing child, and pressure the authorities for justice. From the first minutes of the investigation, suspicion fell on Michael Kay Green, a steroid-abusing Mr. Universe hopeful, but there was no proof of a crime, leaving police and prosecutors stymied. <BR>Tips and sightings poured in as lawmen and volunteers combed the Cascades forest in the biggest search on Northwest history. Years passed with no sight of the blue-eyed girl or the bright clothes shed worn on the day she disappeared, but Elaine remained undaunted. <BR>Salt of the Earth is the true story of how one woman fought and triumphed over life-shattering violence and how she healed her family-and herself. <BR>Jack Olsens particular gift is his ability to illuminate the souls of his characters. -Jonathan Kellerman <BR>A literary achievement of the highest order...A beautiful book.-David Guterson, author of Snow Falling on Cedars<BR
