Summary
"Recounts the case of The People vs. Herman Swift, a story which ran on front pages of newspapers throughout Michigan for three years in the early 20th century. It is one of the most sensational cases to ever go to the Michigan Supreme Court and was reviewed on appeal by famous Michigan governors, Chase Osborn and Nathaniel Ferris. The story revolves around the complex, tragic figure of Herman Swift, his efforts to provide a home and guidance to orphaned and cast out boys, and a resulting scandal which gripped Michigan for years"--P.
