About Miles Lord:
This is the story of Miles Lord (1919–2016), who rose from humble beginnings on Minnesota’s Iron Range to become one of the most colorful and powerful judges in the country, described as “an unabashed Prairie populist” and “a live-wire slayer of corporate behemoths.” It is a compelling portrait of a remarkable man and his place in Minnesota and U.S. history.
