Edition: Advance Reading Copy (trade paperback format. )

Minneapolis: Scarletta Press, (2007). First edition - An account of the redemption of a man whom many would have given up on. "Early on, Taylor somberly informs his readers that 'most men do not survive four decades of incarceration,'. . . An unflinching examination of his crime - a bank robbery and homicide committed at age 30 - and his resulting conviction, incarceration, spiritual growth and eventual emancipation 40 years later, this tale proves emotional, forthright and inspirational. Writing with the help of his wife, the halfway-house counselor he met after his release from prison at age 70, Taylor looks back without self-pity or regret, making the casual cruelty he endures and his straightforward survival strategies all the more chilling. Smart, determined and hopeful, Taylor makes use of his prison days learning the law and helping out his fellow inmates." (Publishers Weekly) Illustrated with photographs. 312 pp.
