Description - Almost Heaven by Martin Fletcher

After seven years as Washington correspondent of "The Times", Martin Fletcher set off to explore the great American "boondocks" - the raw and untamed land far from the cities and national parks. This is his account of a journey which took him to places few tourists would ever visit, to communities largely unknown to outsiders, to the quintessential America. He encounters snake-handlers, moonshiners, creationists, outlaws, polygamists, white supremacists, and communities preparing for Armageddon. He goes bear hunting in West Virginia, fur trapping in Louisiana, diamond digging in Arkansas, and gold prospecting in Nevada.
