1 Review
In the 1950s and 1960s, Neil Haugerud served as sheriff of Fillmore County in southeastern Minnesota. He lived with his wife and their four small children in the same building that housed the county jail, a practice not unusual at the time. In Jailhouse Stories, Haugerud describes what it was like to live next to a prison, where jailbirds and jailbreaks were part of family life. These are the reminiscences of a real-life Andy Griffith character, a man dedicated to maintaining order in rural America during both peaceful and turbulent days.
