A bright, attractive copy.

"This is a story about a town, with a store and a church. It's also about that first preacher who came in the cause of Zion, healed a few bodies, planted a new one, named the town, and then disappeared. It's about the church members and shoppers at Mr. Hayes's store --- Will Poser, for instance, who lived a dry life and dug himself a deep, dry well where he found peace; Odie Poser, who died young on horseback, whose tombstone was in the shape of a centaur. It's about the preachers that followed that first one --- Brother Bois, for example, 'a stick of a man [who'd] poke you to death to sleep in the bed with him,' who floundered in his efforts to baptize big Lucinda Blackburn. It's about the new body planted by the healer and how it was born and raised in Mr. Hayes's store, how it grew up to tell this story. Finally, it is the story of a little town in Kentucky, with a church and a store, that disappeared under the rising waters of 'progress.' "; 6" - 7" Tall
