Description

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.
