Publisher Comments:

Meet 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 to survive the taunts of others. In the hills of southern West Virginia, a boy grows up fast. Trenchmouth sips moonshine, handles snakes, pleases 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 back-woods 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.

Review:

"A stunning, fully realized, unique, and ambitious book that proves there's still passion, fire, and brilliance in the American novel." Houston Chronicle

Review:

"When rude folk tell West Virginian jokes, nobody waits long for a punch line about bad teeth to figure in. In a perfect world, the guffawers would be delivered a copy of The Ballad of Trenchmouth Taggart." Cleveland Plain Dealer
