Summary "... a tangled tale of rural noir. Author Mark Pinsky was profoundly struck by Nancy’s story as a college student in North Carolina in 1970. Here, Pinsky presents the evolution of his investigation and also delves into the brutal history of Madison County, the site of a Civil War massacre that earned it the sobriquet 'Bloody Madison.' Met Her on the Mountain is a stirring mix of true crime, North Carolina political history, and one man’s devotion to finding the truth"--From publisher description.
