Crooked Snake: The Life and Crimes of Albert Lepard
Crooked Snake: The Life and Crimes of Albert Lepard3 5 5 Scritto da: Lovejoy Boteler Letto da: John McLain
In Crooked Snake, Boteler pieces together the story of this cold-blooded murderer's life using both historical records and personal interviews–over seventy in all–with ex-convicts who gravitated to and ran with Lepard, the family members who fed and sheltered the fugitive during his escapes, the law officers who hunted him, and the regular folks who were victimized in his terrible wake.
Boteler reveals his kidnapper's hardscrabble childhood and tracks his whereabouts before his incarceration and during his jailbreaks. Lepard's escapes take him to Florida, Michigan, Kansas, California, and Mexico. Crooked Snake captures a slice of history and a landscape that is fast disappearing. These vignettes describe Mississippi's countryside and spirit, ranging from sharecropper family gatherings in Attala County's Seneasha Valley to the twenty-thousand-acre Parchman farm and its borderlands teeming with alligator, panther, bear, and wild boar.
