Summary
In 1952, "bootlegger Rory Docherty has returned home to the fabled mountain of his childhood, a misty wilderness that holds its secrets close and keeps the outside world at gunpoint. Slowed by a wooden leg and haunted by memories of the Korean War, Rory runs bootleg whiskey for a powerful mountain clan in a retro-fitted '40 Ford coupe ... In the mill town at the foot of the mountains--a hotbed of violence, moonshine, and the burgeoning sport of stock-car racing--Rory is bewitched by the mysterious daughter of a snake-handling preacher. His grandmother ... opposes this match for her own reasons, believing that 'some things are best left buried'"--Amazon.com
