What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

A decade after his TV tour de force as chairman of the Senate's Watergate Committee, Sam Ervin has lost nary a jot of his formidable charm and folksy wit. . . . The reader can just sit back, feet propped up, and imagine craggy country lawyer Ervin, shaggy brows a-waggin', spinning his yarns. . . . A jocund, nimble-minded country lawyer, expertly ladling out moonshine folksiness.—Kirkus Reviews

Sure to brighten up the gloomiest of days.—The State
