McKinley, a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease, and ultimately his devotion to poetry to explore more deeply the human truth of a time, a place, and a life. Originally penned for his family alone to read, Poetic Justice is for anyone interested in contemporary history and a memorable era of Idaho politics to which many look back upon nostalgically. Writing with great candor and clarity, Johnson weaves a tale of larger-than-life figures on local and national stage, offering a unique addition to the canon of memoirs, biographies, and stories of 20th century Idaho.
