Description:

In 1988, General Electric officials in Indiana destroyed a 2000-year-old Native American ceremonial mound, setting into motion a series of shocking political and legal battles. To placate Native American activists and professional archaeologists, federal prosecutors and General Electric scapegoated Art Gerber, a prominent artifact collector who dug briefly on the destroyed mound. Mr. Gerber's prosecution under the federal Archaeological Protection Act made legal history-- and frightened tens of thousands of Indian relic collectors. THE GE MOUND CASE is a story of political intrigue and zealous prosecution, the latest from true crime author Jim Fisher.
