Early in his young adult life, Vern Miller recognized that laws provide the fabric of society; he wanted to be a part of it. As a boy he aspired to be a warrior, and now as an elder statesman in the field of justice, he’s still a champion for the underdog. In this inspirational memoir, author Mike Danford tells the story of a unique lawman whose escapades and charisma are now legend in the state of Kansas.
With more than fifty years in law enforcement, Vern Miller rewrote the book on justice and public service: pursuing criminals with the same gusto he pursued order, social fairness, and public service. Vern Miller: Legendary Kansas Lawman narrates the life of this one-of-a-kind man—from his school days at Wichita North High School, to his U.S. Army service in Korea, to his three decades of public service work with two stints as Attorney General, and his twenty-five years practicing law.
Filled with photographs, this is a memorable portrait of a rare American and a true hero of the law. Vern Miller: Legendary Kansas Lawman emphasizes Vern’s fascination with the rules and demonstrates the commitment of law enforcement officers everywhere to upholding the law.
