COMING SOON ... The Heroine of Cameron Dam, Myra Dietz’s 146-page manuscript (MS). It was found long ago by a vagabond searching through trash outside a Los Angeles publisher’s office. Myra’s life story fell victim to the Great Depression and languished for decades before James Brakken discovered it during research for his true-crime novel, Thornapple Girl. Now, after 91 years, Myra’s recollections of coming to age on a backwoods north country farm, defending her father, then fighting for years to get him out of prison, will be in print. The Brakkens will publish the MS as an annotated memoir. Descendants of John Dietz are pleased to know of the discovery of the memoir and its forthcoming publication.
