Wading Through the Swamp chronicles the history of the era from the time of World War II to the present, highlighting the changes in our culture over that time. The author uses his life experiences from the bad person of his early years to his times as a judge to paint a picture of the evolution of our culture. The story moves from his boyhood years growing up, his black market years in North Africa, his time as a outlaw hunter and poacher, and the time spent in the sport fishing industry on the Atlantic Coast. It moves then to his years as a lawyer and a judge, and the unusual and interesting incidents and cases he was involved in over the thirty-four-year span of his time in the legal fields. A portion of the book examines the unsolved murder of Rosemary Moon McIntyre, and the corruption and the abuses of a prosecutor who shielded the primary suspect from the police investigation into her murder in order to protect his own political future.
