Overview

When we got there, we saw helicopters and smoke coming from the burning buildings. We saw a large number of inmates, many clinging to a fence. We witnessed National Guard troops inside the prison with their weapons, marching in step to their posts. We saw guardsmen on top of the walls and on top of buildings. I never thought that I would end up working there, much less as the warden, some eighteen years later.

Author Dan Reynolds has written an enthralling account of a decades-long career in Oklahoma corrections. In On the Other Side of the Bars, he spills his heart about everything from how it felt to live through his first execution as a warden after only ninety days on the job to the joyfully uplifting moments of seeing the wisdom of experience bear fruit. For those considering entering a career in corrections, he also details the most critical components of a safe and secure prison for staff to work in-and inmates to live in. Learn how it feels to have to deal head on with a riot, and discover why the author is mentioned in a John Grisham book.
