Publisher's Summary

In the winter of 1873, a small band of prospectors lost their way in the frozen wilderness of the Colorado Rockies. Months later, when the snow finally melted, only one of them emerged. His name was Alfred G. Packer, though he would soon become infamous throughout the country under a different name: "the Man-Eater."

After the butchered remains of his five traveling companions were discovered in a secluded valley by the Gunnison River, Packer vanished for nine years, becoming the West's most wanted man. What followed was a saga of evasion and retribution as the trial of the century worked to extricate fact from myth and Polly Pry, a once-famed pioneering journalist, took on the cause of Packer. Man-Eater is the definitive story of a legendary crime - a gripping tale of unspeakable suffering, the desperate struggle for survival, and the fight to uncover the truth.

    "It's All Right"

    Not fantastic, but seems to be very historically accurate and well researched. Unfortunately it seems like a lot of the book seems to be filler to flesh it out. However, I may not be giving a fair review since I was hoping for more grisly details and there just doesn't seem to be any in this case. This book has changed my opinion about Mr. Alfred Packer. I had thought he was exactly what the myths described instead of a human being. I applaud Mr. Schechter for his recounting of trial testimony and aftermath of his life and for shining new light on this case.
