Product description


[I]t's a clear-eyed history of moonshining in America that is especially good in its analysis of the Whiskey Rebellion of 1791-94. It's best received as a valuable and readable collection of stories about the people who made the whiskey and the unintended consequences of Prohibition, finished off with a directory of distillers. Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down 29 July 2014
By West Palm Tennis Bum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying that whether you drink or not has no relevance to your enjoyment of this book. It is just a great collection of stories that happen to be about moonshine, but are really stories about America. It begins with an amazing history of the US as seen through the lens of whiskey and the taxes the government tried to levy on it. The repercussions of that turn out to be far more than you think. This is followed by stories of illegal moonshiners, all of whom are great characters, and then present day legal moonshiners, also great characters. It's an easy, interesting, fun read and you'll see America in a slightly different light. A great job from a writer who knows how to hold your interest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Summer Read 11 July 2014
By LynnB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is fascinating. The author tells the history of moonshine, and there is much more to it than you would imagine. It covers one of those tiny little corners of Americana history that sometimes are overlooked, but are very interesting. And if you aren't into moonshine, a glass of wine is a also a great while you're reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great history 20 April 2015
By Philip J. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a great dive into the history of moonshine and the state of the industry in modern times.

However, I was disappointed that the recipes didn't include recipes about making moonshine.

I was excited to see a recipe section in the Table of Contents listed out after each of the modern moonshiners. Unfortunately, the recipes are limited to using their commercial products to make mixed drinks, etc.

Do not look here for moonshine recipes or techniques.
