Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
The people of Southern Appalachia are hill people of Scottish-Irish descent--religious mystics who cast out demons, drink strychnine, and handle rattlesnakes. When the author, himself Scottish-Irish, uncovers records of snake-handling Covingtons, he decides to take up serpents himself. The result is Flannery O'Connor, Carson McCullers and Garrison Keillor all rolled into one quirky, unforgettable read.

Review:
Option, 8/15/11 "Heartfelt yet sensational...Covington's memoir is genuinely life-changing."
