"A Long Road to Justice" is a collection of fifty short stories, essays, and pieces, mostly in the form of either historical fiction or historical non-fiction. Throughout his book, author Bob Mack emphasizes fundamental themes such as justice and injustice, kindness and cruelty, tolerance and intolerance, and devotion to the Constitution and betrayal of the Constitution. As a whole, these pieces address the reality that the road to justice is a long and winding path and an uneven ride. Forty-four of the pieces are narrative stories or essays written in verse and rhyme. Six of the longer pieces are written in straight prose. The writings are intended as a push back against the three-headed monster of injustice, racism, and intolerance in all of their ugly forms.
