Snake Handlers in Church

  • Brotherbob
    These are photos I have taken over time while covering the "Serpent Handlers: Three Families and Their Faith," a book my novelist wife, Jeanne McDonald, and I wrote in 2005. As a working journalist, I covered the serpent handlers for about 16 years, writing their stories in churches I was able to get into in Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia and Indiana. The book is still in print. It was published by John F. Blair of Winston-Salem, N.C., a regional publisher specializing in Appalachia and the Southeast. The book has won several awards and was approved by the serpent handlers themselves.
