Review quote

"Don West's passion flames over the Appalachians like some fiery dawn, throwing its red light down into the hollows and across the ridges, burning at the mists and bringing in the morning in a dazzling incandescence and with a roll of drums and a flourish of trumpets ... he strums those mysterious universal harmonies that make the language sing." -- Richard Marius, Appalachian Review "A handsome and intense young radical [who] gained near legendary status as a sort of phantom revolutionary who left a trail of radical poems and sermons in his wake ... hiding from the law or fleeing on his motorcycle just one jump ahead of the cops." -- John Egerton, author of Speak Now Against the Day: The Generation Before the Civil Rights Movementshow more
