S. Brian Willson returned from a tour in Vietnam in 1970 to become a radical, nonviolent peace protester and pacifist. In the years that followed, he became a lawyer and fought social injustice and a government he believes to be unjust.

A devotion to nonviolent struggle is what led Willson, in 1987, to stage a protest in which he lay down on railroad tracks in the path of a government munitions train. The train ran over him and it cost Willson both legs. Now, after all these years, Willson finally tells his story in a memoir he calls “Blood on the Tracks.”
