Ballad of Tenchmouth Taggart

Author: Glenn Taylor

Meet Early “Trenchmouth” Taggart, a man born and orphaned in 1903: a one time inventor, snake handler, cunnilinguist, sniper, woodsman, harmonica man, and newspaperman. His is an epic story, a tall tale in the tradition of Mark Twain, chronicling more than one hundred years of exile and outrunning trouble. It is the love song of an outlaw and, like the best ballads, its mark deep upon the memory.
