The Last Soul of Witherspoon takes a "global" approach in its history of a settlement school in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky known as Witherspoon College. Listeners will find this audiobook to be autobiographical as well as a social history told on three levels.
A dirt poor mother and her son who's only possession - their property is desired by an evil man. His lust for wealth drives him to stop at nothing to obtain it - causing a grieving mother the fear of never seeing her only son again. A prison in the desert which has been closed for over a half century is mysteriously reopened, but for what purpose? Why was the boy taken from his mother and the girl he loves - will he ever see them again? Why does Jack McCormack covet John W's worthless property so aggressively?
