Listener Advisory: Language, Violence, Mature Situations, Graphic Descriptions of Death
About The Author: In about 1985 Edward began research in the Oshkosh, Wisconsin newspaper the Daily Northwestern, regarding a local artist, John Franklin Waldo, who lived there in the late nineteenth century. He noticed that, as mention was made almost weekly of the frightening loss of life and limb, the use of language enabled me to visualize much of the intense pain and suffering of the individuals involved in those events and also of the friends and relatives surrounding them. His intention in assembling these life-endling stories - the ultimate in realty - is to share that fascination with, and the appreciation for, journalism in the 1880's.
