The Legend of Justice and Diamonds is finally revealed as chronicled through the recorded visions of The Creator's scribe, Acellus, the first angelic being created. His scrolls take us back into the past where future began, into an alternate reality during the sixth year reign of the first evil King who cared for none. This is the time of the first Earth, before the Earth as it is now; before the Creator fashioned angelic beings as we presently know them. It was during that time that the eternal struggle between good and evil actually began. From the void, the visions of Acellus detail two realms and yet a third: The Forest of Cards, where mankind's virtues reside; the earthly realm, under the evil dynasty of the King of Clubs; and the curious third realm, that of THE KEEPERS: the diviners of the cards. All the forces of Darkness and Light, both in the flesh and in spirit, are centered on two beings that would shape mankind and the second Earth to come: The Lady Justice and The Jack Of Diamonds. She was the moral virtue born from The Forest of Cards, and he the infamous outlaw, first-born of the King of Clubs-thought to have been murdered as an infant. Through their incredulous, impassioned trials, hidden through the ages and now revealed, we find out who and what we really are, and more importantly, who and what we are not.

Renowned for his "brilliant legislative mind" and political oratory—as well as for bicycling to Congress in a rumpled white linen suit and bow tie—U.S. Congressman Bob Eckhardt was a force to reckon with in Texas and national politics from the 1940s until 1980. A liberal Democrat who successfully championed progressive causes, from workers' rights to consumer protection to environmental preservation and energy conservation, Eckhardt won the respect of opponents as well as allies. Columnist Jack Anderson praised him as one of the most effective members of Congress, where Eckhardt was a national leader and mentor to younger congressmen such as Al Gore. In this biography of Robert Christian Eckhardt (1913-2001), Gary A. Keith tells the story of Eckhardt's colorful life and career within the context of the changing political landscape of Texas and the rise of the New Right and the two-party state. He begins with Eckhardt's German-American family heritage and then traces his progression from labor lawyer, political organizer, and cofounder of the progressive Texas Observer magazine to Texas state legislator and U.S. congressman. Keith describes many of Eckhardt's legislative battles and victories, including the passage of the Open Beaches Act and the creation of the Big Thicket National Preserve, the struggle to limit presidential war-making ability through the War Powers Act, and the hard fight to shape President Carter's energy policy, as well as Eckhardt's work in Texas to tax the oil and gas industry. The only thorough recounting of the life of a memorable, important, and flamboyant man, Eckhardt also recalls the last great era of progressive politics in the twentieth century and the key players who strove to make Texas and the United States a more just, inclusive society.
