Western New York State, where I’ve lived my entire life, was called the Burnt-Over District for all the souls who caught fire here, sparked and breathed into flames by the red-hot religionists passing through.
I am A Man of Letters. I’ve been reading lately, and I have found some words I would like to share. Today, “Undercover Mormon: A Spy in the House of the Gods” by Th. Metzger. Chapter Fifteen: The Burnt-Over District.
[Purchase your own copy of “Undercover Mormon: A Spy in the House of the Gods” and read along!]
“Undercover Mormon: A Spy in the House of the Gods” is a memoir by Th. Metzger, available as an ebook from Roadswell Editions.

Until I return, I am… A Man of Letters.
