Summary :

In a world of Southern moonshine and madness, he followed his vision of vengeance.

Euchrid Eucrow -- outcast among outcasts. Born mute to a drunken mother and a father who spends his days building vicious traps and his nights building delicate towers of cards, Euchrid has a mind that seethes with words to express his vision of the world around him.

It is Euchrid alone -- ever hidden to escape the town's self-righteous rage, finding more compassion in the family mule than in his fellow man -- who will grasp the cruel fate of Cosey Mo, the beautiful young prostitute in the pink caravan on Hooper's Hill. And as the years pass and events unfold, it is Euchrid, driven farther and farther from the human fold, deeper and deeper into his mad angelic vision, who will both redeem the town and its people with his pain and sacrifice -- and wreak a terrible vengeance.
