"Wonderfully evocative... Donald McRae captures the Great Defender in all his complexity.... A joy to read." -- Kevin Boyle, National Book Award-winning author of Arc of Justice

"Astonishingly vivid." --James Tobin, Award-winning author of Ernie Pyle's War

The story of the three dramatic trials that resurrected the life and career of America's most colorful--and controversial--defense attorney: Clarence Darrow. Many books, plays, and movies have covered Darrow and the trials of Leopold and Loeb, John T. Scopes, and Ossian Sweet before: Geoffrey Cowan's The People v. Clarence Darrow; Simon Baatz's For the Thrill of It; Kevin Boyle's Arc of Justice; Meyer Levin's Compulsion and the film adaptation of the same name; Inherit the Wind; but few, if any, have achieved the intimacy and immediacy of Donald McRae's The Great Trials of Clarence Darrow.
