Book, Intruder in the Dust
Intruder in the Dust tells a chilling account of an African American farmer, Lucas, who is wrongfully accused of murdering a white man. Lucas is in danger of being lynched by a mob before he is proved innocent with the help of the narrator, a white teenager. Kauffer designed two covers that featured Lucas, but Random House chose to publish an illustration of an empty churchyard cemetery that holds the exonerating evidence.
