Almost Heaven by Martin Fletcher
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


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.

Author Biography

Martin Fletcher was educated at Edinburgh University and the University of Pennsylvania. He joined THE TIMES in 1983, became its Washington correspondent in 1989, and US editor in 1993. Married with three children, he is now based in Belfast.
