Item Description

“I remember ... the flashes from the gunfire in my direction, later finding a bullet hole in my coat. I remembered the police barricade outside a little town that I ran through with the bullets shattering the glass and the tires flattened, however, I kept going for about two hundred yards before the car careened into a side ditch and I jumped out and escaped.”

This is classic hillbilly history, the story of the son of a slain moonshiner filled with anger. It’s a contest between feud level honor and old time religion. It’s the story of a small time gangster who rubbed shoulders and shared bunks with bigger fish in the Depression Era Jails and Prisons of Mississippi, Tennessee, Texas, and Kansas. The sobering experiences of prison brutality amd convict labor at Parchman, Mississippi; inmate abduction of the Warden of the Tennessee State Prison; and the distinctive smell of burned flesh in the electrocution room at Texas’s State Prison at Huntsville. This story has the explicit contours of the Old Testament woven in its pages, and in the life of its author. It details a contest between Celtic Savagery and the Mission that St. Patrick began 1500 years ago. Author was Fred Robertson, 1911-2009, a genetic product of Scotland, Ireland, France, and Spain brought up in Appalachia. Typeset is photocopy from the unedited manuscript typed in 1996, from an 85 year old who was plenty sharp, in fact a little too sharp. Printer is Brothers Printing of Henderson, Tennessee, midways of the West Tennessee Hill section of Appalachia, on the edge of the Mississippi Delta. Construction is standard 11 by 17 with center staples and gray fiber cover. It’s an excellent read, 100 pages. Total print is limited to 2500 copies. We’re offering this fascinating history, each copy only $12.00.
