Guts: The Story of Lane Evans
Coming Spring 2019 from Strong Arm Press.

“Guts: The Lane Evans Story” is a political biography of Lane Allen Evans, a twelve-term Congressman from the 17th District of Illinois. He died in 2014 due to complications bought on by Parkinson’s disease.

Over the course of his career, Lane never took a pay raise and donated 10% of his salary back to the IRS, despite having little to no money himself. He was the first Democrat to win his district since the Civil War and gained widespread respect from both sides of the aisles for his honesty and intelligence. One of his biggest accomplishments was securing health benefits for victims of Agent Orange. Lane is remembered for having the guts to vote his conscience, rather than what was politically expedient. He’s proof that a politician can be truthful and idealistic, and still win elections. 

The book has a “dual-narrative.” One is a detailed account of Lane’s life and career, and the second chronicles his final years battling Parkinson’s. The book also details Lane’s contribution to populist politics and his influence on the early days of Barack Obama’s political career.
