Summary
"This is the story of Jim Edwards, who was six weeks on the run and was sentenced to two years jail with hard labour for allegedly inflaming the Queen Street "riots" of 1932. It tells of the events of that dramatic night, of the great marches of the unemployed, of the Depression "slave camps" where men lost self respect. It is the story of a man whose spirit police batons could not quell, whose sense of humour made light of jail and of being an outlaw on the run. Jim Edwards was a contradiction -- a political agitator who sang and danced his way through the grim years of New Zealand's history. His is the story of a man of principle in a society divided against itself." -- Back cover
