Running on Red Dog Road: And Other Perils of an Appalachian Childhood

Sold By: SonGear Marketplace

In Running on Red Dog Road, Drema Hall Berkheimer shares stories from her childhood growing up in 1940's Appalachia. After her father is killed in the coal mines, her mother must go off to work, and Drema is left in the care of her devout Pentecostal grandparents. Faith healers, moonshiners, and snake handlers populate her stories as she serves witness to a multigenerational family of saints and sinners with wit and keen observations.
