In the Heart of a Fool

by William Allen White

A novel of the development of the middle west in that reconstruction period when such towns as Harvey, Kansas, where the story is set, are just being built up by "bearded youngsters," veterans of the Civil war. The era of political corruption and pursuit of wealth which follows a mining boom brings out in this case two characters from the large number in the book--Adams, the dreamer and reformer and Van Dorn, the scheming lawyer. The fortunes of many very human people are bound together in the story, making a broad picture of life, not to be taking in at a single sitting.
