Mountain Spirits is a scholarly yet entertaining look into this staple of Southern Appalachian history. The folklore of moonshine whiskey is full of fact and fiction, but the real characters tell stories even more humorous and exciting. Dabney's interviews with actual moonshiners and his documented history allow one to take a trip through the mountains - and through history - to discover both the origins and development of the art of making whiskey. With a complete glossary, photographs, illustrations, and interviews, Mountain Spirits offers a most complete exploration of this craft, from distilling for personal use to the moonshining gangs that emerged during Prohibition.Review:
"It's rich reading - wild chases through the Appalachian backcountry, anecdotes of the wild and wooly Prohibition days, and a pervading sense of nostalgia. Of all Americana, this book presents some of the most authentic history and the liveliest reading." --Hal Burton, Newsday
