Sample of the work:
By 1917, those mountains of North Georgia had become a haven for uneasy souls. The heavily wooded hills and the valleys surrounding them concealed moonshine stills, gave hermits solitude and hid young men who were running away from military duty or dodging the draft during World War I. The young men in hiding were called “deserters” or “slackers.”
A shocker, a heart-breaker, a true life story of life given, life taken
and life never lived.
