The galax gatherers : the gospel among the highlanders by Edward O Guerrant( )

8 editions published between 1910 and 2010 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For most of his adult life, Guerrant traveled the hills and hamlets of southern Appalachia, spreading gospel, building churches, and recording his keen observations of the landscape and the people. In 1910, Guerrant published The Galax Gatherers: The Gospel among the Highlanders, an account of these travels and his efforts at establishing home missionaries. He was remarkably successful: he recruited nearly three thousand new Church members in his first four-year term as "Synodical Evangelist," organized twenty-five congregations, and built fifteen houses of worship. Reissued here for the first time, this book is a fascinating look at Guerrant's beliefs, prejudices, and vision for a people Guerrant regarded as "left behind" by the modern world."--Back cover

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Edward Guerrant, a teacher and habitual diarist, was motivated by love, first of one woman and then another, to record his wartime experiences, beginning January 30, 1862, and ending April 11, 1865. Exceptionally intelligent and well educated, Guerrant spent much of the war attached to the headquarters of Confederate generals Humphrey Marshall, William Preston, George Cosby, and, most notably, John Hunt Morgan. From that vantage, he was able to see the inner workings of campaigns in the little-known Appalachian region of eastern Kentucky, southwestern Virginia, and east Tennessee, where some of the most vicious small-scale fighting occurred
