A Look Back at The Ox-Bow Incident

The Ox-Bow Incident by Walter Van Tilburg Clark was the spring 2005 One Book, One Chicago selection. This neglected classic western is a powerful novel that grapples with universal questions of justice and morality. Joyce Miller Bean, storyteller, author and former DePaul University English instructor, provides a modern take on this timeless work.
