Bones Beneath Our Feet
Bones Beneath Our Feet is lyrical fiction deeply rooted in the people and events that made Puget Sound history. The gravestone of Native leader Chief Leschi reads: “Judicially Murdered Feb. 19, 1858.” Behind these few words lies an essential story for all who are passionate about tolerance, dignity and liberty.
Just Deceits tells the true story of the Trial of the Century – the 18th Century – as the remarkable defense team of wily Patrick Henry and ambitious John Marshall battle each other, their clients, family intrigue, the prosecution, and the truth itself, trying to save two young Randolphs from the gallows.
