Under a Full Moon

This true crime history recounts the shocking murder of an eight-year-old girl which in turn led to the last mob lynching in Prohibition Era Kansas. In April of 1932, eight-year-old Dorothy Hunter was abducted while walking home from school. Her mutilated body was later found hidden in a haystack. Not long after, police reported that a local farmer named Richard Read confessed to Dorothy’s rape and murder. But his arrest was not enough for the citizens on Northwestern Kansas. Removing him from his jail cell in Cheyenne County, a mob bound and hanged Read from a tree in what would be the state’s final lynching. In Under a Full Moon, Alice Kay Hill chronicles these grim events, vividly weaving the stories of the victims and the families involved. Taking a deep dive into the psycho-social complexities of the time, the narrative spans from the late nineteenth century to the beginning of the Dust Bowl, revealing how mental and physical abuse, social isolation, the privations of homesteading, strong dreams and even stronger personalities all factored into Read’s life and crimes.
