[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.

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.
