"Bad" John Wright. (Printed verso reads: "John Wright was one of the settlers living in the Jenkins area at the turn of the century when coal companies were opening up Southeastern Kentucky for coal mining. As a U.S. deputy marshall [sic] he enforced the law with a firm hand and the stories of his exploits have become legendary in this section. The name 'Bad' or 'Devil' given to him is complimentary and means that he was bad for lawbreakers. John Fox Jr.'s book, The Trail of the Lonesome Pine is based on the happenings in the life of John Wright in the character 'Devil Jud' Tolliver.")
