Drawing on never-before-seen materials, author Kinville unfolds the complex legacy of a group of Chippewa Falls women (Women’s Klan no. 14) who struggled to balance their intentions to uphold Prohibition and block Catholic Al Smith's path to the White House against the malicious ideology of the Klan.
