Book Review - Chasing King's Killer: The Hunt for Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Assassin

Chasing King's Killer: The Hunt for Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Assassin



About the Book
In his meteoric, thirteen-year rise to fame, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. led a mass movement for Civil Rights -- with his relentless peaceful, non-violent protests, public demonstrations, and eloquent speeches. But as violent threats cast a dark shadow over Dr. King's life, Swanson hones in on James Earl Ray, a bizarre, racist, prison escapee who tragically ends King's life.

As he did in his bestselling Scholastic MG/YA books Chasing Lincoln's Killer and "THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN SHOT!", Swanson transports readers back to one of the most shocking, sad, and terrifying events in American history.

With an introduction by Congressman John Lewis, and over 80 photographs, captions, bibliography, various source notes, and index included.



My Take on the Book
WOW! This was a powerful book that will help you learn so much about an amazing man and the situation that led to his death. The book itself was so insightful and interesting. It was sad and definitely shared a ton of information that I was not aware of in the past. This is a book that will open your eyes to the truth behind the assassination of Martin Luther King. I am so glad that I was able to find this book and read this as I was not aware of so much that was reported here, and I know that anyone that reads this will learn a ton as well!
