The author wrote about his experiences in Texas prisons during the 1920s. From page 1. "By giving a true description of prison life and the after effects of prison, I hope to show many young men the utter folly of crime. Anyone not having the experience cannot realize what it means to be a social outcast; to be handicapped in a business way not to mention the loss of precious years of youth that can never be regained. For thirteen years I was a criminal and eight of those years were spent in prison. I started at the age of seventeen and quit when I was thirty one. During that time I was caught and convicted five different times. The crimes committed were burglary, forgery, theft, and two cases of bootlegging whiskey. I was guilty on every count and pled guilty on every count. By so doing I received the lightest sentences and escaped the habitual criminal law." No date or publication provided.
