Gordon Kahl was a hard-working farmer and a God-fearing patriot. He was also an outspoken leading member of the ultra-right-wing Posse Comitatus, and when marshals came to arrest him for violating probation, Kahl, with his son, killed three men and became a fugitive from justice. Bitter Harvest captures the intense drama of Kahl's flight across the Midwest, and reveals how a violent right wing, born of despair, nurtured hatred, racism, and terrorism.
