"A favorite shelf in my bookcase leads with By-Line: Ernest Hemingway, a compendium of journalism the great novelist wrote to support himself as he worked on his fiction. Right next to it is Ernie's War, dispatches by Ernie Pyle, the most famous of World War II correspondents. Milton Nieuwsma's fine volume joins this shelf of honor." -From the foreword by Tom Stites, two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning editor/journalist
"Compassion and humility radiate from Milt's pen. I followed him to Auschwitz twenty-five years after he wrote his evocative account of the 50th anniversary of the camp's liberation. His exhortation to listen to the stories of the survivors is a sample of his great writing: 'To turn away is to kill them a second time. But to listen is to confront the monster that lurks in the human soul.' A must read."-Malcolm Brabant, correspondent, PBS NewsHour; author, The Daughter of Auschwitz
Before he turned to writing for public television, Milton Nieuwsma traveled the world covering stories for the Chicago Tribune and other major newspapers. This book is a compendium of 21 of his best pieces-20 from the earth and one from hell. He takes you to the Arctic and the Antarctic; to the Amazon and the Nile; to Auschwitz, the scene of humanity's greatest crime, and to a rural Mississippi courtroom where the acquittal of Emmett Till's killers sparked the civil rights movement. "Milt Nieuwsma is a master of his craft," writes Tom Stites. "Its value still leaps out of the page at the reader."
MILTON NIEUWSMA is a two-time Emmy Award-winning writer and creator of the acclaimed PBS programs Surviving Auschwitz: Children of the Shoah and Inventing America: Conversations with the Founders.
TOM STITES is a former editor at the Chicago Tribune and New York Times.
