The Ballad of Trenchmouth Taggart

by Glenn Taylor - £7.99  HarperCollins Publishers (Blue Door) (2010)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780007339549 | ISBN 10: 0007339542

There’s little room in this world for a moral man.
 
Meet Early “Trenchmouth“ Taggart, a man born and orphaned in 1903, a man nicknamed for his lifelong oral affliction. His boyhood is shaped by the Widow Dorsett, a strong mountain woman who teaches him to hunt and survive the taunts of others. In the hills of southern West Virginia, a boy grows up fast. Trenchmouth sips moonshine, handles snakes, pleasures women, and masters the rifle - a skill that lands him in the middle of the West Virginia coal wars.
 
A teenaged union sniper, Trenchmouth is exiled to the backwoods of Appalachia’s foothills, where he spends his years running from the past. But trouble will sniff a man down, and an outlaw will eventually run home.
 
Here, Trenchmouth Taggart’s story, like the best ballads, etches its mark deep upon the memory.
